Title:Technological change and the curriculum in Ghana
Author:Lewis, L.J.
Periodical:Oversea Quarterly
Geographic term:Ghana
technical education
Abstract:Since 1945 the curriculum has been affected in concept, if hot in fact, at several levels by the shadow of technological development; whilst the consequences are not immediately of great significance they point to future changes of considerable importance. The author analysis the Report of the Education Committee, 1937-41, describes the major signs of change, draws attention to the language problem, and to the educational needs of the major industry of Ghana. The succes of the campaign in persuading cocoa farmers to use scientific methods points to the possibility of public pressure for emphasis upon technical training.
