The Headmaster of Rapid International School in the Akyem Dwenase in the Fanteakwa District of the Eastern Region, Mr. Acheampong Michael has advised parents to invest in their child’s education than using their money on things which can cause their future.
“Instead of putting resources in to your child’s future by given them adequate support to excel in life, some parents rather waste money on things which are not profitable”
According to the Educationist, education is the main gate to success in today’s global village of life. He added that without education, there is no way any country can claim its human resource capacity require for nation building.
“The best and most appropriate means to develop as a nation is to invest heavily into its human resource through provision of affordable and accessible education to all without discrimination,” he stated.
The Headmaster made these appeal in an interview on Rite FM’s flagship talk show, stating his view on the way forward to improve performance at the Basic Education Certificate Examination. The level of results keep declining each year especially in some deprive and remote areas of the country.
According to him, teachers can only impact the children with the knowledge and the academic values require by the curriculum but may not invest their personal resources into them (children) since teachers have their private expenditure challenges.
“Teachers cannot afford our children education by investing into them financially. It’s the responsibility of parents,” Mr. Achampong said.
He has also advised Government to create environment which can help the needy but brilliant students especially those in the rural and deprived areas to benefit from the Free Senior High School Policy.
