Education they say, is the key to success; but what will formal education be without textbooks? Since the inception of formal education, textbooks have served as the main reference for both the teachers and the students.

Due to the high demand for textbooks by students in Ghana, several fake publications also write their own books and sell them on the market. Most of these books are not approved by the NaCCA (National Council for Curriculum Assessment).

As a result, if you buy any of these books you do so at your own risk. This is because the content of the book hasn’t been inspected to see whether they correspond with the curriculum or otherwise.

As we can all recall, somewhere around 2019, the Ghana Education Service, the Ministry of Education, and the National Council for Curriculum Assessment decided to revise the curriculum at the time.

This was what led to the introduction of new subjects for primary schools. Some of the newly introduced subjects include Our World Our People, History, Computing (formerly I.C.T), etc.

After the introduction of these new subjects, the NaCCA allowed publishers to submit their books for review and approval. Among the several books that submitted their drafts, only a few got approval from the Ghana Education Service and the National Council for Curriculum Assessment.

All these books have been placed on a database where you can check to see if the book you are buying is among the list of approved books. The process of checking the book is very quick, free of charge and can be done at any time and anywhere.

Conclusion

The NaCCA (National Council for Curriculum Assessment) and the Ghana Education Service developed this platform to ensure that the entire Ghanaian citizenry buy only approved textbooks. This way, all the fake books that have not been approved by the NaCCA will be kicked out of the market.
