A report carried out by Joy News on the state of the Djiradogo Presby school has led to
the realization, or rather re-emphasization, of the fact that Ghana’s basic education
system needs an uplift.
The school, which is located in the Kpandai District, lacks so many amenities needed to
promote good teaching and learning.
The school building was not the best, with the structure built with sticks and roofed with
dry leaves, in this modern age.
To make matters even worse, the teacher who is supposed to impact knowledge into
the students lacked the right teaching skills.
To put it in right context, he lacked the qualification to teach, yet here he was in a
classroom struggling to even communicate with his pupils.
When a teacher spells (misspells) the word ‘creating’ as ‘greating’, then one should
know that the pupils he is teaching risk going home with the wrong ideas.
In addition, the teacher also found it difficult taking his pupils through Information
Communication Technology (ICT) lessons, due to the lack of facilities and IT gadgets to
demonstrate to the students.
On occasions when the teacher tended to look confused himself, it took the intervention of the circuit supervisor from the Kpandai Education office help out.
