Ghana’s education system is not far from a scam – Cheddar explains

Nana Kwame Bediako, popularly known as Cheddar, the leader of The New Force political movement, has recently leveled significant criticisms against Ghana’s current education system.

In his statements, he describes the system as being “not far from a scam,” highlighting a series of shortcomings that he believes undermine the country’s educational framework and, by extension, its future.

One of the critical issues Cheddar points out is the curriculum’s heavy reliance on foreign content and languages, particularly English, at the expense of local dialects and indigenous knowledge.

This preference for the foreign over the local, he argues, not only diminishes the value and standing of Ghana’s cultural heritage but also alienates students from their own identity and potential fields of innovation, particularly in areas like gold processing and agricultural development, which are vital to Ghana’s economy.

Cheddar’s critique extends to the outcomes of this educational system. He observes that despite the years of schooling, which can extend up to 21 years for those pursuing higher education, many graduates find themselves without employment.
