An education consultant, Mr. Grant Bulmuo speaks to Ghana Talks Business on the demands of COVID-19 on all stakeholders of the sector in Ghana and Africa, from governments to parents.
Governments have to re-innovate and not wrongly depend on technology.
Teachers must prepare to take up skills in an aggressive manner to remain relevant to the industry as even the public sector teacher would no longer be guaranteed permanent job security. As many as 400,000 private school teachers and staff are already reeling under the COVID-19 heat and may not be receiving salaries. In research undertaken by the NEOGENICS EDUCATION CONSULTANCY, about 67% of parents did not complete fee payments before the COVID-19 lockdown and that means teachers in private schools may not have been paid. COVID-19 just as has disrupted almost every sector has really challenged the education sector both in Ghana and globally.
Parents have taken on a lot of teaching and are struggling to adjust. Mr. Grant Bulmuo challenges parents with the 4E-model for taking on this challenge. All details contained in the audio interview below.
