A video of primary school children in a classroom with cement blocks as tables have surfaced online.
In the video, some of the children can be seen placing exercise books on arranged cement blocks and writing in them.
Others are however seen with proper desks of a table and chair while some of the blocks are arranged at the back of the classroom.
The video, shared by Class91.3FM has since gone viral and attracted comments from social media users:
Siffah noted that the act is simply wickedness.
Bek wanted to know how Ghana can pay GHc400 million for new voters' register.
Asomaning wondered how long the school has been in existence.
Ekpe is convinced that Ghana is cursed.
In other news, YEN.com.gh has learned that Senior High Schools (SHSs) in Ghana risk being shut down due to lack of food and funds.
Information available shows that they are yet to receive funds since the 2019/2020 academic year began.
Per a report by Starrfm.com.gh, most of the schools in the Eastern region have run out of food.
Some headmasters, speaking on conditions of anonymity, stated that the situation is terrible.
One of them revealed that “I had to feed students from my pocket from last week and this week.”
Another headmaster noted that “as we speak now, all First years, Green 2nd years and SHS 3 students are all in school but nothing has been paid as at now.”
The Ministry of Education reportedly stated on Wednesday, January 8, 2020, that Senior High Schools were to receive their funds for the academic year within 10 days.
The assurance came after the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary School (CHASS) served a notice that the schools were facing challenges with respect to their operations.
