Kinyange M/A Primary Pupils Abandon Classes for Bush Meat Over Lack of Teachers
Lack of teachers in Kinyanga M/A Primary school compels learners to invariably drop out of school to accompany their parents to farms during school hours and later resort to haunting bush meat for consumption
Pupils of the Kinyange M/A Primary School in the East Gonja Municipality of the Savannah Region do abandon classes for bushmeat hunting.
The pitiful condition is due to the lack of teachers and inadequacy of classrooms in the school, Soiree News 24 reports.
The lack of teachers compels learners to invariably drop out of school to accompany their parents to farms during school hours and later haunt bush meat for consumption.
Mr Asumah Yussif, Headteacher of the Kinyange M/A Primary School told SN24 that, the falling standard of teaching and learning of the school is a result of the lack of teachers and the appalling environment of the school.
According to him, most educators who are posted to the school find their way out to other well-structured schools in the Region.
He lamented that the teaching deficit is steadily affecting the academic calendar of the school.
The headteacher mentioned that the school lacks classrooms to accommodate learners.
"The school lacks basic social amenities such as toilet facility, classrooms, library, water, electricity, furniture for both teachers and students to equip teaching and learning processes".
According to him, one teacher is compelled to teach KG 1 to Primary 6.
Mr Asumah Yussif believes the school has been completely neglected by the State’s Authority
Subsequently, he has called on the government of Ghana through the East Gonja Municipal Assembly to post more teachers in the school as well as build more classrooms for learners.
