The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment says it wants to see Ghanaian students move from the habit of learning for exams and has announced changes in the curriculum to reflect this goal.
Executive Secretary of the Council, Dr. Prince Armah, told Joy FM’s Super Morning Show Monday, the new curriculum aims to have students learn for life.
“If the curriculum is designed in such a way that the emphasis is on assessment, then you get teachers preparing students to write exams.”
“There is a complete shift from current thinking that learning means passing an exams,” he said.
