Disturbing images have emerged of some Form 1 Home Economic students from Ningo Senior High-School learning on the bare floor in their classroom due to inadequate infrastructure.
The striking images show the students from Ningo Senior High-Technical School Form 1 Home Economics Students seated on the bare floor in one of their classrooms due to the lack of chairs.
According to reports, the Form 1 students are among 3 other classes with less than 10 desks to cater for over 40 students.
The recent photos of the students learning on the bare floor affirm that the worrying trend of some schools without the basic infrastructure for teaching and learning still persists and Ningo Senior High-Technical School is the latest case to be brought to the limelight.
The school which is located in Prampram in the Dangme East District in the Greater Accra in Greater has pupils learning on the bare floor due to a lack of desks.
Pictures making rounds on social media show the pupils dressed in their school uniforms and sitting on the bare floor in their classroom with books.
Some Ghanaians have reacted passionately over the images the students leaning in a classroom.
'' ah but cant the PTA put some money together to cater for their own kids?,'' Isaac Amoyaw quizzed.
''Isaac Amoyaw wokasa ooo... Some parents say government said it is free so won't pay anything,'' Okyemandehyekronkron Qwamy Otenankaduro Bamfo I said in response to Isaac Amoyaw's post.
Sarah Frimpong also wrote: ''I am not holding brief for government and yes, I know taxes are paid to government.''
She quizzed: ''What would it take for old students of this school to come together to undertake projects to address some of these needs in their alma mater?.''
