Let’s talk about some of the achievements of this noble Minister demonstrating passion and bearing the torch in ensuring that Ghana gets the best from education.
In Ghana, public schools are defined as rectangular zinc buildings painted brown and yellow where the students wear brown and yellow uniforms and this has been the state of our public schools.
The Minister has realised that we have to understand that this is not what will transform Ghana since we are in the 21st century.
Hon. Yaw Osei Adutwum has continuously pointed out that it is high time we ensured that Ghana’s Education makes common sense.
Currently in Juaben in the Ashanti Region, the Junior High School now has a Biology, Chemistry and Physics Laboratories. The project is expected to be completed by March 2024.
The students will start doing science reports when they are in JHS. Instead of Integrated Science, they will do Biology, Chemistry and Physics which This is Quality JHS education.
Here are some evidences of new, ongoing, proposed and soon-to-open projects, including the long awaited Accra STEM Academy.
This is what the minister is doing and it’s moving and exciting.
Indeed we can’t wait to open the one at Juaben that will be able to close down seven old JHSs.
So in February or latest by March, the people of Juaben will jubilate because the old middle schools that became the JHS will no longer be where they will be to send their children to.
According to Hon. Yaw Osei-Adutwum there is going to be some reforms that will change the course of our education system using the 1-million dollar per constituency.
Everything that is in the SHS you can find it across all JHS schools.
This is an educational reform that will not make so much noise but rather evidence-based where people will see what they’ve never seen before in public education.
We owe a debt of gratitude to our Education Minister Hon. Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum for their tireless efforts in shaping a brighter future for generations to come.
