The government is devising a plan to re-enroll school dropouts and children of school age in schools in order to help enhance educational opportunities for underprivileged youngsters.
Rev. John Ntim Fordjour, deputy minister of education, revealed the government’s intentions at a World Vision Ghana educational forum in Accra.
“Bridging the learning gap at the basic level and developing a conducive learning environment through sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) interventions,” was the focus of the forum.
According to Rev. Fordjour, roughly 10,000 basic schools, or 25% of all schools, lack sufficient WASH facilities, which he claims impedes teaching and learning in those schools.
Mr Dickens Thunde, Director of World Vision Ghana, reaffirmed the organization’s commitment to assisting in the transformation of literacy and numeracy difficulties in primary schools across the country.
Mr Abdourahamane Diallo, the UNESCO Country Director, stated that the government must prioritize education as a critical component in reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
He praised the administration for enacting the free senior high school policy and urged it to keep making necessary changes to strengthen the educational system.
