'Mahama Day schools' are useless - Prof Adei Featured

Dean of Arts and Sciences at Ashesi University and former GIMPA rector, Prof. Stephen Adei, has described a move by the erstwhile Mahama government to put up some 200 community day senior high schools as a useless one adding that the only beneficiaries of the vision were the contractors who put up the said facilities and not Ghanaians.

According to the educationist, it was a wrong move by the then government to situate most of these secondary schools in the hinterlands particularly since there were no hostel or boarding facilities available to students and teachers. His argument suggests that it would be difficult for any of those schools in such obscure locations in rural Ghana to attract the needed numbers [1,500] to fully make use of the facilities.

Prof. Adei was however quick to add that the citing of one of the schools at Kwabenya was a good move since it had been strategically put in an area where several people could benefit.

“They are only useful for urban areas. All that they have put in the villages are going to be useless...they are useless. To transport 1,500 people within, you have to go about 30 km in order to fill them without any boarding, without any teachers' bungalows, nothing? How can you do so?" he queried as he spoke to GhanaWeb editor, Kwabena Kyenkyenhene Boateng.

He added, "...large communities can have day secondary schools, big ones. The villages need smaller boarding or even day [schools] serving about only 10 Junior High Schools so it was a model gone wrong...The only people who benefitted from it are the contractors, not Ghana’s education.”

John Dramani Mahama in 2016 had justified the need for the Community Day Senior High Schools saying it was going to help create room for over 184,000 students to get access to quality education once the project was completed.

He said at the inauguration of one such school in the Brong Ahafo region that government was keen on expanding the existing educational facilities in order to make room for many more students.

“I’ve been asked by many people why we have built such huge edifices to house secondary schools. Each of these schools has a capacity to take 1,500 students. Currently, as I speak with these e-blocks we are building 123 of them that should give you the scope of the size of the intervention that we are doing into secondary education. This probably will go on record as the single largest expansion of access to secondary education in the history of Ghana,” he said at the inauguration of the seventh Community Day Senior High School at Abease in the Pru District of Brong-Ahafo.

Prof. Adei however says that though he supports the idea of community schools, the model adopted by the John Mahama administration was not the appropriate one describing it as "a model gone wrong."

    But the real root problem isn’t slavery, it’s that farmers are being paid less and less in most cases. A coffee farmer receives 1 cent for the coffee in a mocha latte, workers in banana plantations earn 1.5 percent of the retail price of a banana and one-third of one cent of a cocoa bar’s retail prices goes to the cocoa farmers.

    Gomez's vocals didn't offer great heat either. At best, she's an effectively girlish singer, though that didn't prevent her from trying some stretches, like affecting a preposterous Island accent, a la Rihanna, in "Like a Champion." Gomez's most assertive moment came in the big gooey ballad "Love Will Remember," when the screens flashed words like "jealousy" and "breakup." They alluded to Gomez's busted romance with Justin Bieber, scoring a gossip bulls-eye.

    You'd be right if you said "micro scale" but it is definitely measurable (in approximations, not exact) on a macro scale. By taking a sample of relatively otherwise equal factors, we can determine which is random, and thus what is luck. E.g. if I measure a coin flip for 100 flips and see that they are equal heads and tails, then I can know that your prediction of getting heads correctly on the 101th flip is likely due to luck. (And yes, I can't be positively sure, it could be some other factor I am missing, and that's why the tests would be repeated by other independent experiments to filter out things like that). Science IS a science.

    Giorgis added that in some parts of Africa the Islamic Republic is perceived as a security threat because of its "support and connections to terrorists and illegal drug and firearms trafficking. Those countries that continue to welcome Hezbollah or Iran are those who either have been corrupted or owe [them] their survival because of military support." West Africa's shipping controls and law enforcement polices are riddled with laxity. All of this helps to explain Hezbollah¹s entrance into countries where regulation and oversight are feeble.

As state and local governments cope with budget issues of their own, those workers may confront similar financial challenges as well.

    Google has made no effort to hinder the development of Ouya, as its Android operating system is broadly available for cost-free license. But any chance Ouya had of gradually developing into a household name among gamers just got washed away by Google throwing its own hat into the gaming ring. If Android proves to be a viable console gaming platform then Google will be in a position to do a better job with it than tiny outsider Ouya. And any momentum which Ouya carves out for Android console gaming this summer will only serve to feed momentum toward Googles own subsequent launch.

    The iPhone 5S features a 5-element lens which Apple describes as ‘new’ for this device. That’s likely because of the increase in sensor size, as it will have to project a larger light circle onto the sensor itself. The lens has an f2.2 aperture, which is a 1/4 stop improvement over the iPhone 5’s f2.4 aperture. That should result in a .5 factor gain in light gathering ability for the lens, adding to the iPhone’s low-light abilities.
