The event, held at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris and attended by global education leaders and policymakers, provided a platform for Mr Fordjour to highlight Ghana’s innovative approaches and achievements in improving its education system.

During the UNESCO High-Level Dialogue, Mr Fordjour emphasized Ghana’s dedication to enhancing access to quality education for all. He outlined key initiatives and reforms that have been implemented to address challenges and foster positive changes in the education sector. These initiatives include improvements in infrastructure, curriculum development, teacher training, and the adoption of technology to support learning outcomes.

The Assin South lawmaker also underscored Ghana’s progress in increasing enrollment rates and improving educational outcomes at various levels. He pointed out specific programs aimed at promoting inclusive education and reducing disparities, especially in underserved communities and among vulnerable populations.

Additionally, the Ghana Education Outcomes Fund has reintegrated 17,000 out-of-school children into the education system within the first year.

Digital learning content and platforms such as Learning Passport, MineCraft, iBox, and iCampus have been deployed into schools by CENDLOS to ensure 21st-century learning is accessible digitally for free. Overall, the dialogue at UNESCO highlighted Ghana’s commitment to innovative education policies and its collaboration with international partners to achieve global education goals.
