Presenting the exercise books to the Sagnarigu Municipal Education Director, Madam Samata Mahama, the Sagnarigu MCE lamented that the performance of basic schools in the BECE passed rate for the past 4 years has not been encouraging and therefore task teachers to work very hard to change the trend.
“Sagnarigu we have a serious challenge with regards to our BECE passed rate… in fact it been dwindling for over past four years now…so I made a clarion called…. in fact a passionate one to the Municipal Director of Education to put our heads together to see how we can change the story in the Sagnarigu Municipality… we alone cannot do it…. We need everybody on board”.
Hon Mariam emphasized that, education plays a major role in every nation’s development thus the need for every child to be given the necessary environment, learning materials and effective tuition to able them to learn well to take up the leadership mantle in future.
She added, “if we don’t have good teachers in our various schools no matter what we give them they can never perform… so it goes together… everywhere I go I always implore our teachers to put in their best so that our children can also become better future leaders… teachers are the most important human beings in the world….. because they made all of us whom we are today… if a teacher does not teach you well you cannot make it… if a child does not commit he/herself to learning he or she cannot make it … and the parent, we all are acting as stake holders”.
Hon Maraim therefore made a passionate appeal to the GES to post committed and dedicated teachers to the various basic schools in the area to improve the BECE passed rate.
The Sagnarigu MCE entreated Head teachers of the beneficial schools to share the exercise books among the needy but brilliant students.
