4 Years SHS Is Better Than 3 Years
He pleaded with the government and everyone involved in education in the country to put aside political differences and consider the four-year system of education again to help push education forward in the country.
According to him, the recent WASSCE results have shown that the four-year education is the best. He said since infrastructure is already in place, the government should reconsider and go back to the four-year system introduced by the erstwhile Kufour government to produce matured graduate.
Mr Dabie who was interacting with the media in Sunyani on education expressed worry over the way education is being politicized in the country and called on Ghanaians to think of the future of the country when meddling with education.
He further mentioned that, the NDC in their manifesto mentioned that they would build ten additional teachers’ training colleges in the country was quick to ask that since this has not materialized, he is wondering where the teachers from the training colleges would teach after coming out of school.
‘The three years will bring redundancy in the schools because there will not be classes for teachers to teach,’ he added.
He pleaded with the teachers to give their best when teaching so as not to produce half-baked graduates who he claimed speak and write only Pidgin English.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Minister for Education who is also the Member of Parliament for Techiman North, Alex Kyeremeh has denied allegations in the public that the four-year students who wrote the WASSCE with the three-year students did better. He noted that, the three-year students performed equally better than the four year students.
Mr Kyeremeh called on Ghanaians to have faith in the educational system because the government has put in place measures to improve the educational system.
