The Education Minister Matthew Opoku Prempeh has revealed that the government is arranging to export trained teachers to other African countries including Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea.
The Minister was speaking when he took his turn at the ‘Meet the Press’ series on Tuesday (November 20, 2018).
He added that Ghana will also allow for the import of teachers from other countries following discussions with the World Bank.
“I’ve had a discussion with the World Bank less than two weeks ago, We want Ghana to open up and bring in fellow African countries who are in a more dire space than ourselves like Liberia and Sierra Leone.”
“I have had discussions with the Guineans who want to bring us French teachers, of course, we are also lacking French teachers and they will take English teachers.”
“So we are exploring everything, I believe that Ghana stands at the cross road of exporting some of our human talents. So we would explore and give the positions to everybody who so desires."
“A country like Philippine exports all manner of things and human beings to all over the world. And I can tell you they are exporting house helps to Ghana now, a country like Vietnam are bringing house helps to us,” he added.
