The Headmaster of the Obenyemi M/A Junior High School in the Yilo Krobo Municipality of the Eastern Region, Mr.Vicent Olympio has urged communities especially the deprived or remote areas to support teachers when they are posted to their areas by the Ghana Education Service (GES).
This, he added is to enable them (teachers) deliver their best during the cause of teaching and learning.
Mr. Olympio who commands a lot of experience in the classroom confessed that teaching in a deprived or remote area is not an easy job at all as most teachers are faced with a lot of challenges including accommodation and other difficulties.
Speaking in an interview with Captain Adabuga, host of the Rite Morning Ride to discuss issues on education, the veteran teacher said that it is an undeniable fact that government alone cannot support the cost of education in the country which is why he believed private participation is imperative.
“Government cannot do it alone and it is about time that communities including its well-to-do indigenes start supporting schools in their communities by proving accommodation to teachers when they are posted to their communities to motivate them to deliver their best during the knowledge impartation process. In this regard, the communities can by themselves boost the grooming of many intellectuals in the future,” he stressed.
