GNECC NATIONAL COORDINATOR CALLS PARTNERSHIP TO CHAMPION EDUCATION ADVOCACY

National Coordinator of the Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition, Mrs. Bernice Mpere-Gyekye has reiterated calls by the Coalition to step up its advocacy mandate to ensure quality education delivery at the pre-tertiary level.

Speaking at an education technology forum organized by Mest with support from the MasterCard Foundation on the topic “Research and Insights – Advancing Education in Ghana through Data and Analysis, Mrs. Mpere Gyekye indicated that despite the fact that GNECC has undertaken several research in education delivery in Ghana, it was sad to note that government was yet to implement the recommendations made in such research.

She called on stakeholders in the education sector to act as one unit to mandate the government to review education policies where necessary. Other speakers during the forum called on education actors and stakeholders not to focus only on government when calling for a review in education policies.

According to them, when parents, students and the community at large unite, the government cannot just throw any education policies at them without first discussing with them and mapping out a road map to ensure its success. The forum brought together players in education technology and was moderated by General Manager of Citi FM, Bernard Avle.
