EDIT: They removed the book hours after I wrote this, they will take years to replace the textbooks.

In Ghana introduced a new educational curriculum a few years ago, they however never put the funding into purchasing new text books. Many students have said there are no texts books in their classrooms and never had been prior to this change.

Well parents complained, so some textbooks were sent to some schools. Religion isn’t taught in public American schools, which is amazing. It’s a private personal matter between your own family but it also allows for more subjects to be covered in the curriculum.

Which many African countries need, a more diverse course option, more room for other subjects.

Here is the Ghanian man’s Facebook post:

When you rush to introduce a new curriculum for legacy reasons, and are pressured to deliver textbooks due to poor curriculum roll-out planning, you are likely to approve junks like this. Even the grammar is terrible. But as usual, no one will be held responsible.

History for Ghana Learners’ Book 4.

  1. Religion is a major cause of physical conflicts, and doctrinal disputes in Ghana and the world as a whole.
  2. Christianity has led to an increase poverty; There is a direct link between religion and laziness which contributes to poverty in Ghana and Africa as a whole. Religion makes people lackadaisical in their attitude towards finding practical ways to improve their undesirable living conditions.
  3. Some religious doctrines brought by missionaries create a sense of fear: or timidity in their adherents.
  4. Religion creates an avenue for many tricksters, or charlatans to parade as men of God to fleece the poor of their meagre resources.
