Professor Kwesi Yankah Reveals Plans of Government to Abolish Single-Sex Education


The government is planning to abolish single sex education in the country following the conversion of the University hall, Katanga, Unity hall, Conti and Africa hall of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology to mixed halls, successafrica.info has learnt.

Professor Kwesi Yankah revealed on a familiarization tour to the converted halls that the single-sex hall system does not help in national development.

“If we continue to perpetuate the exclusive male and exclusive female thing within our setting, in the light of realities, we won’t be helping in the realization of the national development plan”, the minister has learnt.
