The Director-General of the Ghana Education Service has reiterated the need for Teachers to use the Teachers Resource Pack that was careful prepared by experts in Education which GES believes can help the Teacher to deliver effectively to teach in their various classrooms across the country.
In the press briefing on Thursday 26th August 2021 the Director-General of Ghana Education Service prof. Opoku Amankwa admitted that the delivery of textbooks to Low and upper primary schools has been delayed. He explained that management anticipated that by few months after the introduction of the new curriculum that the textbook will have been ready. It is unfortunate that after the introduction of the new curriculum it is exactly two years today no textbooks have been provided to Teachers in the primary schools to teach the new curriculum.
The Director-General stated that in the absence of the textbooks management has been able to provide every teacher that attended the new curriculum training was provided with a Teachers Resources pack which he thinks is one of the best materials that can help teachers to teach.
In responding to teacher unions’ press statement on 10th August 2021, which says the absence of textbooks in primary schools is affecting their lesson delivery. The Director-General said he sees no reason why Teachers should complain when the teacher’s Resource Pack is available to them.
