The era of students carrying so many text books to school will soon be over as President Mahama has indicated that hos administration intends converting them into an electronic module.

According to him, the text books for the various core subjects will be converted into softwares which will be put on tablets and distributed to Junior High and Senior High School students.

“Students will receive tablets that have all their core subjects on the tablet. If the pilot is successful, the programme shall be expanded,” he said.

President Mahama assured that a lot will be seen under the education sector once Ghanaians renew his mandate on December 7, 2016.

“We will provide accommodation for teachers who will accept postings to rural areas,” he added.

The President made this known at the highlights of the NDC’s 2016 manifesto, Tuesday.
