Ghana’s educational system not solving our problems – Osafo-Maafo

Osafo Maafo

Senior Presidential Advisor Yaw Osafo-Maafo has expressed concerns about the quality of Ghana’s educational system, questioning why, despite a high number of educated individuals, the country continues to face numerous issues. He highlighted several issues, including poor sanitation, recent flooding and its severe consequences, and the frequent damage to school roofs anytime it rains.

Speaking at the International Educators Summit 2024 on the theme, “Reimagining Education for the Future We Seek: Africa and the World in Dialogue” Yaw Osafo-Maafo argued that education should solve societal problems and not rather create.

“We have a change, but that change must be manifested into solving the problems facing this country, as we go along. So, we should begin to think through education as a problem-solver for the nation. “This is my simple message to the minister of education [Dr Yaw Osei-Adutwm], and the whole educational system. We have a myriad of problems facing us in our education system.

“Our education system and the content should aim directly at resolving these problems, simple problems like sanitation, flooding,” he opined.
