Mr Amadu Musah, East Gonja District Chief Executive, has commended the District Directorate of Education for initiating progressive programmes to address the deficiencies in the educational system in the area.

He noted, however, that the Education Directorate must step up supervision in the field to ensure that its efforts to improve education in the District were not undermined.

Mr Musah was opening the first phase of a five-day "Trainer of Trainers" workshop on the teaching of peace education and psycho-social skills at the basic level for 400 teachers at Salaga, the district capital.

The DCE said the tremendous infrastructure development going on in the educational sector and the improvement in the working conditions of the staff of the Ghana Education Service (GES) were clear testimonies of the government’s commitment to improve on educational standards.

"What is expected of the teachers is therefore the transformation of these incentives into good grades for our pupils," he said.

Mr Musah gave the assurance that the District Assembly would continue to support educational programmes that had promise for the area, adding that the District’s development partner, Ibis, a Danish NGO, had demonstrated its preparedness to help transform education in the area.

Mr Edward Gayuoni, District Director of Education, said the objective of the workshop was to equip the teachers with all the necessary information and skills for the development of the culture of peace among the children at the basic level.

He said in building a foundation for peace in schools, teachers must first get involved in peace education, respect their rights and responsibilities, as well as those of the children they teach.

Mr Gayuoni said to achieve this teachers should seriously work towards building their capacity for tolerance, adding: "In this way, you will avoid hurting the self-esteem of the children".
