Government Procures 400,000 Past Questions For SHS Students

Purchasing WASSCE Past Questions For SHS Students Wrong – Minority

 

 

Meanwhile, the Ranking Member of Parliament’s Education Committee, Peter Nortsu Kotoe, questions the rationale and the budgetary provision made for the procurement of past examination questions for Senior High School students preparing to sit for the West African Senior High School Examination (WASSCE) in 2020.

RECOMMENDED:  GES Posting Of Trained Teachers From Colleges of Education

According to him, the move is wrong and does not help in preparing the students to live beyond the examination. He made this known with the statements:

 

“In the first place what is the budgetary allocation for it because as far as I know, in 2019 there was nothing like that in the budget of the Ghana Education Service or Ministry of Education to procure such learning materials for students in senior high schools,” he stated.

 

“This is been done because government failed to supply the needed textbooks to senior high schools. It is not morally good for government to do that. Yours, is to provide the learning and teaching materials for teachers to teach and prepare the students for examination. Are they preparing them only for examination or for life?”

“Yours is to provide the learning and teaching materials for teachers to teach and prepare students for the examination. Are they preparing them only for examination or life? They must prepare them to think and answer questions, not to let them have questions in advance and tell them what answers to provide and when they get to the examination hall, they get disappointed. It is wrong for the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service to have done that,” he insisted.
