Asrobenhene of Juaben Traditional Council is urging Ghanaians to support the government in improving the quality of education in the country.
Nana Badu Boateng says since the government alone cannot meet the infrastructure needs of all basic schools; there is the need for citizens especially those living abroad to support.
Nana Boateng spoke at an event to commission renovated a six-unit classroom block for Atia basic M/A school in the Juaben municipality.
Atia Basic M/A school was in poor condition which adversely affected quality education.
Atia residents living abroad came to the rescue of the school to put it into good shape.
Nana Boateng wants residents to take their education seriously to have an impact on society in the future.
Headmistress of the school, Juliet Gyasi Nketia, expressed gratitude to the residents and appealed to stakeholders to help equip the school for improved teaching and learning.
She says the school lacks computers for effective ICT education.
“The furniture that we use in the IT centre are broken beyond repair,” she said.
Teenage pregnancy is becoming a challenge in school.
The headmistress says the situation has affected girlchild education in the area.
Poor road network is another concern residents want to be addressed.
Chief of Atia Nana Adu Boahen II appealed to the government to help improve infrastructure development.
