PRESS RELEASE: One student, one Tablet is unnecessary – The New Force, Atwima Nwabiagya North Constituency

The New Force Supporters in Atwima Nwabiagya North Constituency have raised concerns over the inability of the government to successfully implement the Smart Schools Project, which was launched by the President on Monday, March 25, 2024 and how unnecessary it is to launch such implementations.

The Ghana Smart Schools Project is designed to equip students under the free SHS policy with essential technological skills, aligning with the government’s commitment to advancing education through technology.

The government has revealed plans to distribute Smart Tablets to 1.3 million Senior High School (SHS) students nationwide. “However, the Minority has challenged the figures, highlighting that there are no approved funds or dedicated resources for the implementation of the project.

A statement issued and signed by Dr. Clement Apaak, the Deputy Ranking on the Education Committee, said the original idea behind the policy as promised by this government was to distribute the tablets to over 2.7 million students in both the senior and junior high schools. But the project in its current state will see the distribution of only 450,000 tablets to some selected students at selected schools.”

In this case, not all Senior High Schools(SHS) students will benefit from this initiative.

The New Force Supporters in the Atwima Nwabiagya North Constituency are concerned over why the Akufo-Addo/ Bawumia-led NPP government is investing in one student one tablet when there’s more to do in the Education sector than this Policy.

There are still schools having classes under trees, lacking facilities both in the Junior High School(JHS) and Senior High Schools(SHS).

Most uncompleted educational facilities have been abandoned and the government is wasting money on tablets?
The Education sector needs more than The Ghana Smart Schools Project.

Ghanaians, as usual, can be trusted to see through the razzle-dazzle attached to the launching of the programme and recognize it as an election campaign twist.
