The government will invest some two hundred and nineteen million dollars ($219 million) on a comprehensive set of interventions that address constraints from teaching to learning in our schools under the Ghana Accountability and Learning Outcomes Project (GALOP).
Through this Programme, teachers, in the early grades, will be provided with continuous training, in line with the new curriculum; schools will receive teaching and learning materials; heads of schools will be trained on improved school management techniques, and supervision and assessment systems will be strengthened.
Speaking at the launch of GALOP, President Akufo-Addo said Ten thousand (10,000) low-performing basic schools, across the country, have already been selected to benefit from the Project, and he was confident that the implementation of GALOP will help drive standards and quality in these schools.
Expressing his appreciation to the World Bank and DFID, co-sponsors of the Project, the President reiterated the commitment of his government to the goals of the Project.
“We remain focused on ensuring equitable teacher deployment and strengthening accountability regimes. That is why the Government is pleased to be collaborating with the World Bank in introducing the Ghana Accountability and Learning Outcomes Project (GALOP),” he added.
