Quality education requires careful evaluation – Prof Gadzekpo
The Dean, School of Information and Communication Studies of the University of Ghana, Professor Audrey Gadzekpo, has called for careful evaluation of what quality education means in today’s world, in ensuring learners have quality education.
She explained that we are in an era of globalization, fuelled by information and communication technologies which have implications for teaching and learning, hence the need for careful evaluation.
Professor Gadzekpo was giving a keynote address on the theme ‘Ensuring quality education through discipline: The role of stakeholders’, at the Achimota Basic School Speech and Prize-Giving Day.
She urged well-trained teachers to take a child-centred teaching approach and adopt a curriculum that imparts literacy, numeracy and basic skills for life.
Headmistress of the school, Mrs Edith Kyeremanten acknowledged the 1985 year group of the school for sponsoring the occasion. She also thanked the group for bringing back the speech and prize-giving ceremony, which was last held 15 years ago.
She urged students to break all odds and emerge successful citizens as noted for students who passed through the walls of the Achimota School.
Deserving students were awarded prizes in various subjects while staff were also awarded for their hard work.
The occasion was also used to launch the Achimota Basic School Endowment Fund.
