Academic work is being hampered at Gbegu D/A Primary School in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District of the Savannah Region as no teacher has been to the school in the last five weeks.
The Gbegu D/A Primary School has good classrooms but unfortunately, there are no teachers to teach the over 100 children.
Achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4 by ensuring inclusive and equitable, quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all would not be achieved if the situation continues at the Gbegu community.
The Assembly Member of the area, Mr Kula Raphael, said he has made several appeals to the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District Education Directorate for teachers to be posted but nothing has happened after his appeals were made, he told Yagbon News in an interview.
“It is only the Catholic Church leader who has sacrificed to help the children. We need teachers in this community, I am appealing to the GES to post teachers here.” he added.
Since school reopened for the past five weeks, no teacher has come to the school and when I contacted the office I was told a teacher has been posted here but up to now we haven’t seen any teacher in the school, the Assemblyman added.
“The children in the school are many but due to the lack of teachers, they rather go to the farm instead of being in the school without teachers”, Hon. Kula noted.
