John Boadu mentioned:
I wonder why sometimes as teachers we worry ourselves on issues that really don't concern us.is it our duty to go round to call students to come to school.u decided to take that duty up why don't u meet the opinion leaders in the community to address that issue.why should u be walking up and down in the community in the name of asking students to come to school.
Obed Afun indicated:
The kids are even scared of the classrooms they are going sit in to study. Maybe there should be a new law that will mandate all public sector workers to send their wards to government basic schools hmm.
