In an effort to improve accessibility for students with disabilities, the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment has established an Inclusive Education Expert Advisory group with the help of T-Tel (Transforming Teaching Education and Learning), a non-profit organization based in Ghana.
Two senior high schools, Okuapeman Senior High School and Mampong Senior Technical School, will test the new curriculum. Mr. Quartey stated that before the curriculum is implemented nationwide, NaCCA will consider input from the schools following the pilot project and address any issues raised.
According to him, the new curriculum would also encourage diversity, enabling full participation from educators and students alike.
In order to ensure the success of the new SHS curriculum, Mr. Quartey appealed for community support.
