The Builsa District Directorate of Education has distributed 8,000 school uniforms and 49,000 exercise books to schools in the District, whiles another 175,000 books were expected to be received from Accra.

Mr Francis Avonsighe, Builsa District Director of Education said each Junior Secondary School Student received 12 exercise books; Primary four to six pupils received 9 books each, whilst primary three pupils received 6 exercise books each.

Mr Avonsighe said this in Sandema, when the Minister of Information, Mr John Tia, toured the District, during a three day working visit to the Upper East Region, to interact with Heads of Departments, civil and public servants and the people of the Region.

He was grateful to government for the infrastructural support given to schools but expressed worry that only 45 per cent of teachers working in the District were trained teachers.

He appealed to the Ghana Education Service for an increased quota in the distribution of teachers.

He said the introduction of computer placement and mode of assessing results for the Basic Certificate of Education (BECE)
candidates did not favour students who lived in remote rural areas, adding that, with intermittent network problems and absence of internet facilities in the district, students travelled long distances in order to get their results.

He said this year, he had to go round to print student placement for them because the schools did not have computers and internet facilities.

Mr Tia appealed to graduates of senior secondary and tertiary education to take up pupil teaching to impart the knowledge they had acquired.
