Accra, July 15, GNA – Mr
Samuel Ntow, the Director for Private Schools in the Ghana Education Service (GES)
has said plans were underway to strengthen the operations of the Service to
make it more responsive to the changing educational needs.

Speaking at a
stakeholders’ meeting organised by the USAID Partnership for Education/Learning
on improving the reading habits of pupils, Mr Ntow said the GES had started
restructuring and strengthening its activities in order to produce responsible
and self-reliant citizens for the country.

“GES is in the process
of restructuring its operations to be in line with the educational policy
initiatives and programmes of government.

“The Curriculum and Research
Development Division and the Teacher Education Division (TED), for instance,
have now been merged with the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment
(NCCA) and the National Teaching Council (NTC) respectively to facilitate the
production of good-quality instructional materials and teachers for our schools
and institutions”, he said.

Dr Guitele Nicoleau,
the Chief of Party for USAID Partnership for Education/Learning said her agency
would continue to support government to provide quality education through
reading to its citizens.

“We will continue to
work with other stakeholders to improve performance in the teaching and
learning of literacy in the early grades of formal education in the country”,
she said.

The USAID Partnership
for Education/Learning is a five-year activity aimed at improving the reading
habits of approximately 1.1 million kindergarten and lower primary pupils in
100 districts in Ghana.
