Breman Essuokor: Pupils Boycott Classes Over Lack Of Teachers
The Pupils of Breman Essuokor D/A Basic school in the Asikuma Odobeng Brakwa District of the Central Region have boycotted classes since the Monday, 7th February 2022, over lack of teachers. The pupils demonstrated on Monday to register their displeasure and to call on authorities to pay attention to their situation. The pupils
claim there’s only one teacher who teaches the whole Junior High School, a situation that is also affecting teaching and learning. Speaking to the media, the pupils said only one teacher has since the resumption of the academic year reported to the school. They claim the teacher also handles JHS 1 to 3. Gideon Aidoo, school
prefect of theschool said, We need teachers so we can learn. Having one teacher taking all three classes is worrying. The JHS 3 students are concerned this would affect them the more even as they prepare towards their final exams. Naomi Otoo, also a JHS3 Pupil said; We need teachers. We’ll plead with the government to
give us teachers. We’re in JHS 3 and without teachers, how can we write our final exams without teachers? They appealed to the government to come to their aid. Even though the District Chief Executive for Asikuma Odobeng Brakwa, Lawrence Edutuah had promised to speak to the media on the matter, subsequent attempts to reach him proved futile.
