Government to construct 30 Smart Schools this year – Akufo-Addo

At least thirty SMART schools are expected to be built across the country by the end of this year under the Ghana Smart Schools project, President Akufo-Addo has said.

The initiative aims to bolster senior high school education by providing teaching and learning management systems, digital learning content and electronic devices to all senior high and TVET schools nationwide.

The project aligns with the Ministry of Education’s digitalisation agenda for pre-tertiary education and supports the government’s goal of leveraging technological advancements to prepare Ghanaian students for the fourth industrial revolution.

Speaking at the official launch of the Ghana Smart Schools project in Accra, Akufo-Addo said the schools will be off the national electricity grid with digitalised infrastructure to advance teaching. “The other component of the Ghana Smart Schools project is the provision of infrastructure. The government intends to build 100 Smart Schools across the country.”

“The first thirty of these will be completed this year and the remaining seventy will be completed in the next two years.” “And for the avoidance of doubt, it is planned that the 100 Smart Schools will be located in the following cities and towns in all the 16 regions,” Akufo-Addo said.
