Abandon STEM education at your own risk: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education is crucial to Ghana’s growth, according to Minister of Education Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, which is why the government is investing in the field.
Future education ministers were challenged to try to discontinue STEM education at their own risk.
He said “we have sown seeds that will be generated in the coming years. The foundation that we have laid for STEM won’t change, you change STEM at your own peril. The president is an education transformer, and every foundation he laid should be built upon.”
Dr. Adutwum explained that STEM creates critical thinkers and problem solvers hence the decision by the Akufo-Addo administration to invest heavily in that area.
