Ho Municipal Education Directorate to better academic performance

The Ho Municipal Education Director, Mr Godwin Amelor is poised to move the standard of academic performance from 20 per cent recorded in 2020 to 80 per cent.

Mr Amelor revealed this during a town hall meeting held for schools in the Ho municipality under the Theme “Improving education in the Ho municipality".

According to him, the future of every community, region and country depends on the quality and accessible education given to the children.

During the meeting, parents raised concerns about the lack of infrastructure to accommodate their wards in the school which is not giving the students a conducive environment to learn.

They also mentioned that some teachers don't show love and care to the students.

Some of these according to parents prevent students from concentrating on their studies.

They, therefore, appealed to the Ghana Education Service to make teaching and learning materials available for teachers to use.

On the side of the students, they said, the subjects are too much for them and must be reduced. They entreated parents to provide them with their needs to enable them to stay in the classroom and learn.

Teachers lamented about the lack of supervision by parents at home when their children come back from school.

According to them, some parents allow their wards to use Mobile phones without showing concern or asking how and where they got them from.

Some of these students according to the teachers use the phone for the phonographic purpose which is affecting their academic performance.

Addressing all these concerns, the Municipal Education Director, Mr Godwin Amelor said, he will do everything possible to make a change as far as education in the Ho Municipality is concerned.

He urged all parents, teachers and the students to play their part and the government to also provide the necessary logistics to enhance effective teaching and learning.
