Ghanaian Blogger, Kobby Kyei has come out to say that he doesn’t see any benefit of the annual National Science and Maths Quiz which is organised for High Schools across Ghana.
In his opinion, the NMSQ is purposely for bragging. But if we should look carefully at it, it doesn’t solve any problem in our daily lives.
He added that we must be serious as a country.
In other words, Kobby Kyei is implying that room should be given to practicality of the knowledge of Science and Mathematics instead of the ‘chew and pour‘ approach used by the contesting students.
He believes if the school children are rather asked to develop practical ideas that can solve National issues, it will go a long way to add value to our every day life.
His followers on Twitter and Instagram where he made his post joined in to praise him — saying he has a point. Many commented that it’s time the organisers of the NSMQ thought about how to create a practical aspect of the competition instead of the ‘every day theory’ approach.
