The Ministry of Education and Sports has cautioned schools across the country that have defied the government in the implementation of the new Lower Secondary Curriculum rolled out in 2020.

The permanent secretary, Ms Ketty Lamaro, in a November 9 circular, expressed displeasure that a number of schools have continued teaching old curriculum using a traditional knowledge-based approach.

Ms Lamaro said some schools have continued to administer beginning of term, mid-term and end-of-term examinations to Senior One and Senior Two students, contrary to the guidance given by the National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC).

The ministry warned against schools conducting classes up to 5pm.

According to the curriculum, learners are supposed to end lessons at 2.55pm and undertake research, self-learning and projects to acquire problem-solving skills.
