December 9, 2021

Minister for Education Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has said Ghanaian teachers are one of the best resourceful teachers across the world considering their performance and attitude towards their students.

According to him he would defend that statement every single day and added that once teachers are provided with the opportunity of learning and teaching materials, they would do fantastic job.

Dr. Adutwum used this year’s West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) results to justify his assertion for identifying the resourcefulness of the Ghanaian teachers’, “especially with tremendous high passing graded which is over fifty percent (50%) of the total students who sat for the examination.

At a press briefing on Thursday, December 9, 2021 after answering a question on the floor of the House, he told members of the Parliamentary Press Corps (PPC) the Ministry would do everything to ensure that education becomes the most important agent for socio economic transformation.

He further noted that to push up the economic transformation was going to start with science, technology and engineering; “whatever we embark on, if done well the end result would ensure transformation”, he added.

Again, he emphasised that the educational system would become the important vehicle for socio- economic transformation, and “we want to say quality education should be accessible to every Ghanaian in this country”.
