Pay attention to schools, teachers in rural areas

Dear Editor,

I would like to draw the attention of the Govern­ment through the Ghana Education Service (GES) and other concerned authorities about the poor learning environment of some rural areas.

Despite the fact that major developments were ongoing in schools in the urban areas, schools in the rural areas have been left out.

Some schools in the rural areas lack qualified teach­ers and conducive learning environment.

The issue of security is another major factor militating against learning in the rural areas because teachers that are posted there tend to complain of inadequate security and eventually abandon their duty post.

Currently, some students in the rural areas have no tables and chairs to sit on while teachers lack any office accommodation and chairs to sit on.

This makes it difficult for both the students and the teachers.

As a concerned citizen, I am calling on the govern­ment and other concerned authorities to look into this matter critically and pro­vide a conducive environ­ment for the rural students.

I am appealing to the government to provide the necessary infrastructure and learning materials needed to aid in the teach­ing and learning in the rural areas.

Esther Appiah,
