An educationist has called for a paradigm shift in Ghana's education system.

According to Mrs. Susanne Prince-Boateng, who is also the Managing Director of Corwn Academy, the education system from basic to the tertiary level needs a complete overhaul in order for the youth to be part of the global digital economy.

She made the call at the school 14th graduation ceremony in Accra over the weekend on the theme: 'Entrepreneurship Education - Shaping Entrepreneurial Minds'.

Mrs. Prince-Boateng maintained that, there must be room for creativity, innovation and skill acquisition for graduates to be ready for the job market.

She bemoaned how students are not being trained for life but rather for examination purposes, a situation she said has affected the development of the country.

Based on this development, Mrs. Prince-Boateng said at Crown Prince Academy they have tried to go beyond the BECE and enhanced the school's curriculum with financial literacy, wildlife culb, leadership training, industrial visits, excursion, coding club and is hoping to add enterpreneurial siklls as one of our new intiatives.

The educationist there called for eminent educationists to review the education curriculum in the country to make students have enough time to learn.

In her report, Acting headmistress of the school, Mrs. Belief Amponi-Kagson said the school performed very well in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

The above success, she noted could not have been achieved without a strong team of teaching staff.

While advising the graduates to protect and uphold the image of the school wherever they find themselves, the Acting headmistress urged them to stay focus and keep their dreams and aspirations, intact.
