The NPP, NDC and an independent presidential candidate for the December polls have all underscored the importance of education especially science related subjects.
New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for Abuakwa North, Gifty Twum Ampofo speaking at a dialogue of science teachers in Accra submitted, an NPP government under a Nana Addo leadership will make the teaching profession an enviable one observing lack of laboratories especially at the basic schools, lack of qualified teachers to handle the courses and little incentive for science teachers have all conspired to hamper the advancement of science in the country.
Prince Addo of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), noted the teaching of science and mathematics has been strengthened at the secondary and tertiary levels through varied interventions.
He also called on the relevant education service leaders to offer incentives to science teachers who are willing to travel to the hinterlands or rural areas to teach.
The Independent Candidate heading into the December 7 election, Jacob Osei Yeboah (JOY) called for a restructuring of the educational system.
“It’s no secret that our educational curriculum was developed by another country,” he rendered adding upon winning the election, he will merge the Ministries of Education and Industry so there will be a ready workforce to feed industry.
