President Nana Akufo Addo will be reviewing the basic level curriculum of schools to promote competitiveness and quality of education.

This was made known by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta during the presentation of the budget statement in parliament, Thursday.

According to him, "...government will also redefine basic education to include secondary education covering technical, vocational and agriculture education. As part of this initiative, basic education certificate examination will be used as a tool for placement of students into the second cycle schools and not for certification. To improve the quality and relevance of education and further make the products of our schools system competitive, government will review the basic level curriculum to focus on the four R's of reading, writing, arithmetic and recreation to include life skills and creative skills. Government intends to ensure that all our school children have these basic skills when they exit the primary school system"
