According to the President, “we must address the problem of low learning outcomes that reflect in the performance of some of our children at the Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA), Early Grade Mathematics Assessment (EGMA), and Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).”
To achieve the desired improvement in learning for all of Ghana’s children, who go through the school system, in literacy, numeracy and critical thinking skills, Government, the President said, is determined to ensure that children in every part of the country are taught by professional teachers.
