A member of the NDC's communication team, Elikem Kotoko, has revealed that he has written a letter to question his ward's teacher why he gave an essay assignment on the topic, "education has caused more harm than good" to his child in grade four.
Elikem Kotoko made this disclosure on the 'New Day' program on TV3 when he reacted to WAEC's rescheduling of two examination papers.
According to Elikem Kotoko, he was surprised that his ward came home from school yesterday and was given an assignment by him to write a creative and argumentative essay on the topic; "education has caused more harm than good"
Elikem Kotoko indicated that he had to write a letter to his ward's teacher that he's sorry, but why can he say that education has caused more harm than good to a pupil who is in grade four?
He said that if his ward is even at the tertiary level, he would have understood that it's are academic things.
Elikem Kotoko was of the view that if the assignment was a debate, he would be okay with it, but where the teacher is making his ward at that young age to suggest reasons why education is harming than good, he is sorry, but it's not doing anything good to the kid at that level.
He added that we must make our children believe that education is everything from the basic schools up to the junior high schools, and even at the senior high schools.
