Odikro of Miawani, a farming community in Suhum Kraboa District in the Eastern Region, Nana Yaw Darko, has expressed worry over the deplorable state of Miawani Primary School.
According to him, the classroom block of the only primary school at Miawani has become a death trap, which situation puts fear in teachers to accept posting to the school.
Speaking in an interview with Today, Odikro lamented how the only available teacher in the school, Mr. Emmanuel Adakpo, sometimes becomes tired hence report late to school.
“Currently, our school is built of mud; some sections of the building are on the verge of collapsing even though half of it had already collapsed which is very worrying… because it poses a lot of danger to the pupils. Then also there is nothing like text books and other learning materials, making learning very difficult.”
He complained about the lack of Junior High School (JHS) in the area.
He lauded Mr. Emmanuel Adakpo for being the only teacher who has been teaching the pupils in the school.
To this end, Nana Yaw Darko appealed to government to assist them.
