Citi TV/Citi FM in collaboration with the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences will be holding an education forum discussing inclusion in education on Wednesday, April 14 at 5 pm.
The forum is under the theme “Reducing barriers to accessing education in Ghana”.
The drive for inclusive and equitable quality education is in line with the fourth Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 4).
Resource persons for the forum include Amankwa Asiamah, the chair of the Select Committee on Education in Parliament; Michael Nsowah, a former Director-General Of GES; Joyce Larnyoh the Chair of CSOS Platform on SDG 4 and Kofi Asare, the Executive Director of the African Education Watch.
They will be handling issues concerning the oversight of the education sector, its policy framework, gender and inclusion issues and assessing the effectiveness of the institutional and policy framework.
The forum will be moderated by the host of the Citi Breakfast Show, Bernard Avle.
It will identify any layers of discrimination or lack of opportunity that inadvertently deny students the right to be educated and make proposals of how to address them.
The Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences is proposing a widening of the public discussion to ensure that the country’s educational system really becomes the engine for driving SDG4.
