The Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum admitted the inability of the government to supply textbooks to basic school pupils, despite the introduction of a new curriculum two years ago.

Dr. Adutwum made this comment when he appeared before Parliament last week to answer some urgent questions, including the procurement of textbooks for the implementation of the new curriculum.

According to the Minister, government recognises the relevance of textbooks in education, and is working assiduously to deal with the situation.

He was optimistic that once the relevant processes have been exhausted, distribution of textbooks will begin across all the regions and districts in the country.

In this regard, tonight on JoyNews, Evans Mensah discussed, ‘No textbooks for new curriculum 2 years on: The impact’, with his panelists; Vice Chairman of Education Committee of Parliament, Dr. Prince Hamidu Armah, Fellow of Africa Education Watch, Divine Kpe, President of Ghana Publishers Association, Asare Konadu Yamoah and President of Innovative Teachers Union, Stephen Desu.
