‘One student, One laptop’ Promise By Bawumia Faces Severe Criticism On Social Media

Source The Ghana Report

The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia speaking at the 60th Anniversary celebration of the Hohoe Evangelical Presbyterian Senior High School on Saturday, May 27, said the government through the Ministry of Education is preparing to replace textbooks with laptops in Senior High Schools across the country.

“If this country must move forward in the right direction, we must invest in education which is the only platform for preparing nation builders for tomorrow”.

“The Minister for Education has also assured me that this year, we’ll start the replacement of textbooks with laptops in Senior high Schools,” he noted.

This promise by Dr. Bawumia alias ‘Digital Man’ has raised many brows on social media with the majority claiming that it will be futile since the incumbent government under which he serves as a Vice President has disappointed Ghanaians.

Other social media users recalled some promises Dr. Bawumia made earlier and have been able to achieve for Ghanaians, hence the ‘One student, One laptop’ promise can be a reality.

Below are some comments from social media users on the ‘One student, One laptop’ promise

I want to know if the laptops will be solar-powered. Some schools do not have adequate electricity

The students are suffering, food issues and accommodation yet…

Some Teachers have not even received their laptops yet and it’s been two years

Misplaced priorities, quite absurd and sickening.
I had a short stint in a private school that offers the British Curriculum; even at O-level and A-level they still use text books.

There is a reason text books are still present even at tertiary level. This man is confused.

I don’t think he knows what he’s doing. And I’m not sure he thought hard about this before coming out to say this. It makes absolutely no sense to replace textbooks with laptops, especially when you consider how expensive laptops are compared to books. Anything for votes. LOL
