The Daily Graphic applauds the decision by managers of the educational sector to revise the existing curriculum saying it is in tune with best practices and modern trends. The paper says such a move could not have come at a better time than now. It asserts that the current level of technological advancement, a knowledge economy and the need to be on the same page with the rest of the world must be the driving force in the country’s educational system. The Graphic says the revised curriculum, which is a shift from the objective-based curriculum to a standards-based one with focus on strengthening the acquisition of the four R’s (reading, writing, arithmetic and creativity) as foundational skills for life-long learning and national development, is a positive step towards the country’s educational development.
The Ghanaian Times describes it as timely the intervention by the Minister of State in charge of Procurement and Ministry of Regional Reorganisation and Development to train public officers on procurement which will equip them on procurement issues and keep them abreast of provisions of the procurement Act in the administration of the new regions. The Paper calls on government to intensify and extend the training to include public officers who are directly involved in the procurement processes of all state institutions. The Times urges government to deal ruthlessly with anyone who flouts the procurement law under the guise of innocence of the law because ignorance of the law is no excuse.
