Tumu College of Education marked its SRC Week on the 7th April 2018, placing a call on authorities for necessary reforms to be done to the current educational Curriculum of the college. With the theme being mobilizing for Ghana’s future, the need for an innovative oriented teacher education. It highlights on the reforms needed to be done in order to improve the educational curriculum to meet current demands of academic excellence.
The SRC president of the Tumu College of Education Baharu James during their Annual week celebration called for a special attention to be paid to teacher trainees to lead Mother Ghana into the future and therefore expressed that it is their view that courses at the colleges of education should be based on subject areas to enable teacher trainnees have enough time to study rather than the combination and the continues change effected on the course every semester. If that is done will enable the trainnee teachers’ master courses and study hard to improve standards of education at the basic school level he appealed.
The SRC president said their curricula should be more of practical with effective teaching and learning materials, especially computers. This is because training teachers learn the concepts without knowing the good of it. Meanwhile, inadequate toilet facilities are a hindrance to Sanitation as the most affected who are girls resort to open defecation in nearby bushes. Inadequate water supply to the college is another challenge. it was disclosed that not all trainnee teachers have been paid the governments restored allowances since it was effected last year. They are therefore also appealing to government urgently ensure all payments are done as soon as possible.
The Principal of the College Mr. Adam Kaleo Bertinus in a seech read on his behalf urged students to explore and take advantage of the learning opportunities given them to make their training holistic to enable them became innovative. He said to achieve this, the students must discipline themselves to take part in all extra curriculum activities of the college.
In an interaction with my Vice Principal yesterday, she said the students should not limit themselves to reading their textbooks for exams only, but also they should equally be interested in getting involved extra-curricular activities of the college. They never know where and when they will be required to perform and activity. The SRC week preceded clean up exercise and sports activities which the authorities commanded.
