The Ellembelle District Director of Education, Mr. Wilfred Katey Adodoadji, has urged stakeholders to come on board in ensuring that the standard of education is improved.

Mr. Adodoadji says children of today will be the future leaders and as a result must have access to quality education which will be only possible if the standard of education is improved.

He has therefore urged parents and traditional authorities to go back to the past and enforce rules and regulations that forbid school children to go out at night but rather be in their homes to study since teenage pregnancy and truancy among schoolchildren is becoming rampant in the area.

“When they become successful, we will also benefit from it, so I will plead with you to try your possible to take good care of the children, I will also plead with nananom that if there is a law to protect these children please enforce it”

“We have school going children who do not sleep at night and this usually leads to teenage pregnancies and other social vices so I will plead with Nananom to enforce such practices.”   Mr. Wilfred Katey Adodoadji said.

Mr. Adodoadji made these remarks during a ceremony to present chopbox, bibles and other prospectus to students who sat for this year’s BECE exams in three communities namely; Ahanta kotoklo, Ankobra and Bobrama.

Mr.  Patrick Asuah, an aspiring Assembly Member disclosed that the government’s introduction of Free Senior High School has bridged the gap between the rich and the poor in terms of secondary education in the country.

“The list is very long, some lists are two (2) sheets while others are four (4) sheets, just ask yourself if their parents can afford all that is on the prospectus, at the end of the day, affording these things becomes a burden on the parents so after carefully analysing the situation, as an aspiring Assembly man I decided to initiate a one student one chopbox so that the students will get at least a chopbox and a Bible when going to school”

According to him, he started lobbying with company’s to get the students the chopbox and the Bible last January.
