The longest serving Member of Parliament and current Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has expressed concerns about the educational system in Ghana saying. According to the National Democratic Congress firebrand, the system needs to be reorganized in a manner that encourages more creativity.
He had this to say about the issue;
“Unfortunately, our educational system is not too good. We mostly develop one aspect of our brains – which – is the memory. And so what they teach you is what you chew, accumulate, and accommodate. And so when they ask you a question, you try to reproduce that. Our educational system doesn't teach many to be creative to come up with our ideas”.
The speaker further posited that both youth development and empowerment are very significant and both must be prioritized all the time.
