The Coalition of Affected Teachers announced that the government, through the Ghana Education Service (GES), has ordered teachers to stop using the new elementary school curriculum, which began implementation last month, and to re-use the old one.

It is worth recalling that the General Director of the Ghana Education Service, Prof. Kwasi Opoku Amankwa, announced the new reforms in April 2019 at a press conference organized in Accra.

He expressed the hope that the new approach to school learning will ensure that children are able to fully understand what is being taught by teachers.
He added that GES will ensure the training of 150 master coaches nationwide under the new curriculum.

But an interview with Alfred Ocansey on the 3FMSunrise Morning Show, Director of Communications for the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ayikwei Awuley Adokwei expressed his dissatisfaction with the instruction to revert to the old curriculum as the process has started for the new one and the old one in the middle in the implementation of the new will affect the teaching process, although the teacher.

“As a teacher in the classroom with no textbooks, now you have to go back to textbooks from the old curriculum to teach the new curriculum, don’t flow, teachers have to look at it and make adjustments before teaching, and it puts a whole lot of strain on the teaching process for Teacher.

He added, “That means whatever you’ve taught students with the new curriculum over the past seven months, you have to take the old one and go back to class.”
