Students without textbooks can’t ask questions, think critically – Apaak replies Education Minister

Clement Apaak, Member of Parliament (MP) for Builsa South, claims that Ghanaian children are not as fearful as Education Minister Dr. Osei Yaw Adutwum would have the world believe.

Dr. Yaw Adutwum, the Education Minister, has stated that despite all of his travels to schools around the country, pupils have yet to ask him questions about the conversations he has had with them.

He believes that Ghana requires an aggressive curriculum that would encourage critical thinking in Ghanaian pupils while also giving them the guts to confront the existing quo.

In response to the Education Minister’s comments, Dr. Clement Apaak, a former Law Lecturer, stated that Ghanaian students are not afraid to think critically.

However, the educational climate in the nation does not promote critical thinking among pupils.

“Teaching and learning materials are not available to children, the environment is not suitable, and teachers are also being witch-hunted, so how can we expect to develop young men and women to think critically?”

“There are no textbooks that students must study in order to ask questions.” What will they question the instructors about? The Minister pledged that when schools reopened, they would get the books, but the schools have yet to receive them. “We need to know what’s going on; they should tell us why the books aren’t available,” he stated on Accra’s OKAY FM.

Apaak was perplexed as to why the Minister was grieving in America while doing little to boost education in Ghana.
