The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) has waged war against schools using unapproved textbooks and teaching materials.
NaCCA says any school (both private and public) found to be using unapproved textbooks shall be brought to book.
In a statement issued by NaCCA signed by its Acting Director-General, Mr John Mensah Anang on 6 March 2021, indicated that it has noticed that “some schools (both private and public kindergarten, primary, Junior and Senior high) are using unapproved books”.
“Additionally, some individuals and publishing companies are advertising unapproved books across the country”.
“All heads of pre-tertiary schools (both private and public), parents/guardians, publishers as well as the general public that it is illegal to use unapproved books (textbooks and supplementary readers) in pre-tertiary schools,” the statement added.
The statement further noted, “the agency will soon embark on random visits to pre-tertiary schools”.
“Similarly, drastic measures shall be taken against the publishers of such books.”
