Reverting to ‘O’ & ‘A’ level system not advisable - Franklin Cudjoe
The Executive Director of IMANI Ghana, Franklin
Cudjoe, has said it will not be advisable for
government to reintroduce the ‘O’ and ‘A’ level
system of education, as suggested by the Ghana
Charismatic Bishops Conference.

Speaking on Citi FM’s News Analysis Programme, The
Big Issue, Mr. Cudjoe said it will be needless to
revert to the old system, since challenges facing
the educational sector have nothing to do with the
‘O’ and ‘A’ level educational system.

He believes to resolve challenges facing the
educational sector, politicians, who in his view
are responsible for messing up the educational
system, should be compelled to introduce effective
policies that will address these challenges.

“Unfortunately, the same politicians in the fourth
republic alone, have messed the system so badly
that they never really paid particular attention
to the workshops that were supposed to come along
with these renewed forms of education. The biggest
challenge to delivering results through these
schemes has always been the politician.

What has happened now is that, it is the people at
the lowest ranks of the poverty chain who have
technical vocational schools, which I think it is
a very bad thing to do. I will not necessarily
agree to bring the old system, but rather we
should tell politicians that there are certain
things you need to back off.”

The Charismatic Bishops’ Conference in a
communiqué issued earlier this week, called on the
government to reintroduce the ‘O’ and ‘A’ level
educational system which according to them, will
restore the integrity of formal education in

It said the country had been subjected to an
inferior form of education through the JHS and SHS
for many years.”

The Charismatic Bishops’ Conference, founded by
Bishop Dag Heward Mills, and comprises seasoned
Ghanaian clergy, said, “we call the JHS and SHS an
inferior form of education because international
universities require our SHS graduates to do a
foundational course for a whole year before
admitting them to the university proper.

Years ago, graduates from secondary schools in
Ghana did not have to do such foundational courses
because they already had a good foundation.”
