NSMQ favours grade A school
YEN.com.gh reached out to an educationist, Mr Daniel Fenyi for his take on this year's competition where he revealed that the NSMQ favours SHS catergorized as grade A schools.
"The competition favours Grade A schools. There are more innovative talents hidden in the Grade B, C, D & E schools but the nature of the competition only favours Grade A schools where most of the students are smart in memorising and speaking.
"If the quiz changes into a practice-based one, it is likely a lot of students from lower grade schools will shine"
He also advocated for quiz masters to be made to oversee contests in some stages of the competition.
"Currently, the quiz is run by only female mistresses from the district and region levels to the national level. This gender bias is not helpful. In fact, this may account for why the girls schools are not able to do better, because, generally, female students tend to like their male teachers which makes them perform well in the classroom. Therefore, if these girls come to meet male quiz masters, they may perform better too.
Ghanaians react to the utterances of the young man
