YEN.com.gh has learnt that pupils of the Island of Patmos D/A JHS in the Afigya Kwabre District of the Ashanti Region are in dire need of computers for ICT studies.
A YEN.com.gh reader with ties to the school informed this website via email that the lack of computers and other critical teaching and learning facilities was hampering education in the school.
The lack of computers in several public schools across the country, especially those in deprived areas, has been an issue of great concern for many Ghanaians.
In some schools, although there are computers, there is no electricity to power them.
YEN.com.gh recently reported on a school in the Central Region where students used stones in place of the computer mouse.
The school, Assin Asamankese D/A Primary School, received 20 computers from the government but could not use them because power was not connected to the school.
In the case of Island of Patmos D/A JHS in the Afigya Kwabre District of the Ashanti Region, there is electricity connected to the school, but no computers available for pupils.
It is critical that the government rises to the occasion and provides pupils of the school with the computers they desperately need for ICT education.
This is crucial to securing their future in the 21st century.
