The World Bank, by the latest Human Capital Index, has revealed that 56% of Ghanaian students will go waste due to the poor quality education. They indicated that only 44 percent of school children will be productive in future and ranked Ghana 116th out of 157 countries.
Speaking to Beyond 90.7FM yesterday afternoon, educationist Mr. Daniel Fenyi supported the research outcome of the World Bank and went further to describe the education as a “refuse dump” where all “rubbish” policies are dumped.
Explaining further, Counsellor Fenyi said many absurb policies have been introduced into the education sector which have reduced it’s quality. These unfriendly policies include abolishing “repetition”, removing cut-off grades for postings of BECE candidates, inadequate science and computer labs, and frustration of teachers.
The respected educationist called on government to take the World Bank’s research seriously and work towards improving the quality of education and not to focus on “quantity/numbers” of people receiving education.
