The Member of Parliament for the Effutu constituency in the Central Region, Alex Afenyo Markin has launched a programme to improve ICT education in the constituency.
Under the programme dubbed “one-private school teacher, one-laptop project” each private school teacher in the Effutu constituency is supposed to get a brand new HP laptop.
Speaking to Citi News, the MP said a total of 606 public school teachers within Effutu had already benefited from the initiative and indicated that teachers in Effutu must be abreast with knowledge in ICT.
“We are in an ICT world and a teacher needs to have all his resources since research is key and this laptop will be used for such an exercise. But to me that is the drive because without such resources we can’t expect our teachers to do better,” Afenyo Markin said.
According to him, plans are far advanced to build a multi-purpose ICT Resource Centre for both private and public school students to patronize.
He indicated that the people of Effutu can only boast of education but according to the MP, the University of Education, Winneba has done little to change the status quo.
