If elected President in the 2024 election, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia says he will introduce a new school curriculum dubbed a growth mindset to help students build critical skills such as problem-solving, risk-taking, opportunity spotting and design thinking.
The flagbearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party announced the new curriculum addressing party supporters, leaders and Ghanaians on February 7, 2024, at the University of Professional Studies (UPSA) auditorium on his vision.
“We must have a mindset of possibilities and not impossibilities. The challenges we must overcome as a country are too important to let our political differences derail us.
There is a critical failure of mindset that manifests itself in the absence of core values, patriotism and principles within our society.
We need to invigorate the can-do spirit of the Ghanaian to believe that we can even do better than we ever imagined if we put our minds to it.
For example, our students from Mamfe Girls and Prempeh College have won international robotic competitions against their peers in the US, Germany and South Korea.
We must apply the same mindset of beating the world in robotics, Sing-a-Thons and Cook-a-Thons to every sphere of activity. This must be inculcated in our children from home and in school.
This is why we are going to introduce a growth mindset curriculum to help students build critical skills such us problem solving, risk taking, opportunity spotting and design thinking,” the Vice-President said in his vision address on Wednesday.
