Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, says pictures of the president and the minister in charge of education must be hanged in the offices of all headmasters in the country.
Speaking on ‘The First’ show monitored by YEN.com.gh on 3FM, Dr. Adutwum said that will boost civic education.
“If you go to most public offices, you see the president's picture, the Coat of Arms, civics, it gets you to appreciate the country that you are growing up in as a child…,” he stated.
“It is very important to let them know that the picture they see, one day it will be their picture,” he added.
Speaking during the April 22 interview, Dr. Adutwum expressed gratitude to the president for the opportunity and the confidence reposed in him.
According to the Bosomtwe lawmaker, the appointment gives him a unique opportunity to transform the country’s education system.
