Fix Our Dilapidated Structures:  Public schools in deprived communities

Fix Our Dilapidated Structures

Public schools with dilapidated structures in deprived communities will have the saddest reopening experience when schools resume in Mid-January. 

To this end, the voice of the headmaster of Tanoso M/A JHS, Mr. Micheal Marshall Futukpor echoes the many urgent calls from all public schools that cannot educate learners in dilapidated structures across the country.

He has therefore called on the government to as a matter of urgency come to their aid and fix their structure.

He furthered that, the school lacks the needed desks for pupils and therefore assistance is needed before school reopens.

His appeal was put forth during the disinfection exercise embarked on by the Government in the Bono, Bono East, and Ahafo Region.

The disinfection exercise has covered more than 25 schools.

Seven tertiary institutions, some JHSs, and basic schools have all benefited from the exercise in the various municipality.

In an interview with Edulearnweb corresondent, the headmaster, Mr. Francis Futukpor, said, the school’s structures are unfit for classrooms.

The poor nature of the structures which had their roof nearly ripped off was also inadequate to accommodate learners. School authorities have had to jam-pack pupils into available dangerous structures.

Desks supplied to the school have also broken beyond repairs, and those that can be repaired for reuse have been left to root unattended on the school compound.

He, therefore, appealed to well-meaning Ghanaians, organizations, and philanthropists for help.
