Former Education Minster of Ghana and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) has added her voice to the ongoing debate on Ghana’s educational system and the need for a change.
According to Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang any student who does ‘chew and pour’ must stay home.
She refers to such students as not creative and that they lack innovation and ideas to apply what is being taught them in class.
“What are chewing, what are you pouring? If you spend your four years in school chewing and pouring then it is better you stay at home,”
Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang said all this in an interview on JoyNews Probe this morning.
Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang stood as the vice-presidential candidate for the New Democratic Party during the 2020 elections.
She is a Ghanaian academic and politician who served as Minister for Education from February 2013 to January 2017.
She is a Full Professor of Literature and currently serves as the Chancellor of the Women’s University in Africa.
