Education Minister, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, is charging public tertiary institutions to allow students who obtain grade D7 in WASSCE to have access to tertiary education.
According to the Minister, the institutions must create access for such students through innovative programs.
Dr Adutwum does not understand why the Education journey of students must be curtailed simply because they had a grade D7 in WASSCE.
Speaking at the swearing-in and inauguration of Governing Councils of some public technical Universities, the Minister charged the schools to innovate and create access programs for such students.
Our gross tertiary enrollment ratio is 18.8%, South Korea is 73.6%, so no nation has been able to show transformation without hitting 40 to 50% tertiary enrollment ratio.
Mauritius is 40%, you go there and everything is changing. Our 18% will not change Ghana and that is why the President has set an agenda of 40%, what it also means is that you have to start looking at your programmes, more diploma programmes so that students sitting home with D7 will find a place in your institution.
