People of Nator-Longborizu in the Nadowli-Kaleo District of the Upper West Region have lamented over the low number of classroom teachers at the Longborizu Basic School accusing authorities as responsible for the situation. They said that authorities are making situation worse by transferring the few teachers who were helping the school in the community.
The residents revealed that the referral of the teachers to other schools have forced them to hire the services of volunteer teachers to support the already over-burdened teachers. They however lamented that, the volunteer teachers have also left the school in furtherance of their education, leading the school back to the status quo.
In an interview with a teacher of the school, who gave more insights into the issue, noted that, the school currently have four permanent teachers at the primary school. According to the teacher who described the situation as unfortunate, the four already over-stressed teachers have to handle more than standardized numbers of pupils and subjects.
The development has hampered the smooth delivery of quality, serious-minded learning which to a greater extent affects academic outcomes of pupils.
The community folks lamented over the numerous ‘unsuccessful’ steps they have taken to get additional teachers for the school, including going to the Nadowli/Kaleo District Education Office.
The community residents have appealed to the government to post teachers to the school to help save the school from what they called ‘eminent collapse’.
