People of Katua in the Wa East District of the Upper West Region, are complaining that basic schools in the community are without furniture. According the people, the situation is affecting effective teaching and learning negatively in the school.
Speaking about the issue, the Unit Committee Chairman for the Katua Electoral Area, Sandiang Gomina, revealed that, some of the pupils without any alternative, sit or lie with their stomach on the hard floor of the classrooms while learning.
Another resident, Banti Haruna, laments that, inadequate or lack of furniture in a school encourages absenteeism or demoralizes both the pupils and their teachers from giving off their best,
Nafisa Osman on her part, reiterated the need for furniture and teacher for effective teaching and learning; adding, that they are doing their best towards helping the school internally. She however, bemoaned that their efforts have been constrained by poor income generation over at their end, hence, their persistent call for external support.
They are therefore calling on the Wa East District Assembly and NGOs to come to their aid.
