The Education Minister in an interview last week admitted the inability of the government to supple textbooks to basic schools for teaching and learning despite the introduction of the new curriculum two years ago.

Mr. Kwasi Kwarteng explained that the government recognises the relevance of the textbooks in our schools and is working assiduously to make the textbooks ready for schools.

While admitting the relevance of the textbooks,  he emphasised that the  newly introduced curriculum is not textbooks-centered. The textbooks are supplementary reading materials for the learners.

“Let me take the opportunity to also clarify something…Whiles, we do not underrate the significance and the importance of textbooks, I also have to state on record that if you look at this standard-based curriculum, it is not textbook-centered. That is what we also probably have to be abreast with it. If we want to make it a textbook-centered that will be a reversal to the old curriculum we were using. But of course, it is not in a way suggesting that textbooks are also not important,” he said.

“I can confirm that March this year, we are going to start with the printing and distribution of the textbooks to the various schools”, he added.
