Government is required to deploy educational resources to underprivileged areas

Stakeholders in the educational sector are urging the government to provide the equal distribution of instructors and instructional materials to schools, particularly those in the country’s hinterlands and difficult-to-reach regions, a top priority.

The country’s ability to provide high-quality education is still being hampered by inadequate infrastructure, poorly placed instructors, and inadequate supplies of teaching and learning materials in schools, particularly in underprivileged regions.

Country Director Freeman Gobbah urged the government to set the right priorities by investing in education at all levels, particularly in underprivileged areas, in an interview with Citi News conducted on the sidelines of the commissioning of a six-unit classroom block for the Klo Agogo Anglican Primary School in the Yilo Krobo municipality to mark the 10th Anniversary of Pencils of Promise.

Infrastructure is one of the issues we’ve seen over the years; where there isn’t any, we need to construct more, and where there is, it has to be fixed. Infrastructure is the greatest problem, followed by instructors, whose deployment in schools is not ideal given that students are in classes without teachers.

Thirdly, there is a problem with the lack of teaching and learning resources in many of our rural areas. Infrastructure, teacher deployment, and teaching and learning materials are the three elements I’ve mentioned. We just need to set the appropriate priorities, in my opinion. Let’s invest in these young people because, if we do, the next generation will be well-educated and capable of succeeding the elderly when they pass away.

The Yilo Krobo Constituency Member of Parliament, Albert Tetteh Nyarkotey, who worked with Pencils of Promise to make the building possible, could not contain his happiness.

“I have to admit that I am proud of what we accomplished today at Klo Agogo. I restored a school building for the Apersua village by myself and gave it to them last year. The Klo Agogo community has experienced pleasure and relief as a result of our partnership with Pencils of Promise today, and I’m more than willing to work with them again and any other well-intentioned group to help the Yilo people thrive.
