He underscored the crucial need for education reform and urged individuals not to oppose it based on political affiliations.

The Minister commended the National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) administration for introducing E-Blocks classrooms to enhance infrastructure in the education sector.

Speaking during a media interaction in Accra, he disclosed that 30 percent of the population lacks access to the Free Compulsory Education (FCUBE) program.

Acknowledging that some Ghanaians opt for Compulsory Education (CUBE) by paying for their children’s education, often in private schools, he recognized the substantial challenges faced by public basic schools.

This recognition has led to the decision to transform these institutions.

Discussing ongoing reforms, the Minister outlined plans to hire facility managers for Junior and Senior High Schools (SHS). He also mentioned the introduction of courses in aerobatics, aviation, and aerospace programs in 13 SHS next year.

Furthermore, the Education Ministry aims to collaborate with a private company to commercialize students’ inventions.

The Minister stressed an imminent revolution in the education sector, including a focus on increasing science enrollment with a target of a 60/40 science to humanities ratio.

He commended President Akufo-Addo’s dedication to education reform and expressed optimism about the positive changes these initiatives would bring to the sector.
