Award-winning Ghana Education Blogger and founder of EducationGhana.org, Ellis Ferdinand has said that the CCP Curriculum for JHS not part of the New SHS Curriculum
Speaking on the CCP Curriculum for Basic 7 to Basic 10 learners, he indicated, that the National Council of Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) shall review the CCP Curriculum to end at the JHS 3 instead of the initial SHS 1.
He added, that Basic Education does not include the Senior High Schools since the Pre-tertiary Education bill which was being pushed for approval by parliament during the tenure of Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh as Minister for Education was not approved hence the SHS can not be considered as part of the Basic Education level but shall be maintained as the Second Cycle Education level.

Ellis Ferdinand has said that the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) shall not be cancelled after the 2023 edition as speculated in the media.
Ellis Ferdinand indicated, that the 2023 BECE shall be the last BECE under the Objective Based curriculum but not the end of the entrance exam into the Senior High School.

Ferdiand, however, indicated, that the shs Curriculum was almost ready for stakeholder engagements so teachers at the SHS should be expected of the new face of education in the Senior High Leve;l.
Ferdiand cautioned publishers who were in the process of publishing books on BS 10 OR SHS 1 to stop to prevent the loss of investment.
