A formal education broadens our horizons. Granted that some teachers are not educators and have no business being in a classroom, what we gain in school is significant and shouldn't be down-played.
If someone is picked and appointed to head an office based on their expertise in the matters handled by that office, I can excuse that. However, I'd expect that person to have a good grasp of the primary language used in conducting business. If the language errrm escapes them every now and then, I'd suggest they get a translator. UofG graduates a bunch of linguists every year.
Why do we have MPs that can't speak english very well? It reduces my confidence in how effective they are at doing their job. How do they ensure that contracts, policies etc are properly written?
I can imagine that is is easy to resort to insults and name-calling when one doesn't have enough vocabs to hold intelligent discussions/ debates. That could be the reason why our politicians act the way they do.
I'd love to see Ghana do more in educating our children.
