The Ghana Deputy Minister for Education, Rev. John Ntim Fordjour has revealed that the Ghana Education sector has improved massively in many diverse ways within the past five years under the leadership of President Nana Akufo Addo and his administration.
However, he further indicated that the time investment of President Akufo Addo government into the educational infrastructural system in the country have yielded positive results by easing pressure on the educational system in terms of infrastructure notably overcrowding of accommodation within the Senior High School SHS level.
Furthermore, the Ghana Deputy Minister for Education, Rev. John Ntim Fordjour speaking to a section of Media at Accra revealed that the massive improvement in the infrastructural system in education has led to a new cohort system whereby each group will continue to be in school together thereby doing away with the Gold/ Green double track of the form one and twos.
However, Rev. John Ntim Fordjour was quick enough to clarify and refute that, it does not mean that the double-track educational system in the country is terminated but it only operated in a different form for easy management and administration.
He further explained that this new development will allow each group of students to be together in school and for that matter help ease the burden of teachers to set different forms of exams questions for them due to different times of writing and it will also improve other forms of monitoring and evaluation of the students.
Additionally, the Deputy Minister for Education who also doubles as the Member of Parliament for Assin South in the Central Region added that form two students will similarly go to school as one cohort not divided into two.
