Address the issue of textbooks and teaching materials immediately: – Dr. Apaak to Government.

Dr Clement Apaak, a member of Parliament from Builsa South, has requested that the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service (GES) make teaching and learning resources available in schools.

He disclosed that schools lack chalk and textbooks, both of which are necessary for effective academic work.

He claimed on TV3’s News @10 on Tuesday, May 10, that this is hampering teaching and learning.

“We call on the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service (GES) to address this issue immediately including making sure that text books and the implementation of the new curriculum are available for teaching and learning,” he said.

In an earlier statement, Dr. Apaak said “Basic Schools Reopening – Below is a summary of complaints I’ve received from some heads of Basic Schools as they reopen tomorrow, Tuesday, May 10th, 2022.

“Basic Schools start the Second Term of 2021/2022 academic year, however pupils attendance registers are yet to be received; Government owes Capitation Grants as follows:

  • a) 2019/2020 (2 Tranches),
  • b) 2020/2021(1 Tranche), and
  • c) 2021/2022(none have been paid).

“I urge the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service to urgently take steps to address these issues. We can’t have effective teaching and learning in our Basic schools if these issues persist.”
