As a measure to improve the quality of education in the Tamale Metropolis and the country as a whole, a six unit classroom block has been constructed at Vittin Electoral Area to ensure suitable environment for learning.
The project which forms part of the assembly’s plans of replacing schools under trees and to decongest the classrooms is nearing completion and residents especially pupils are excited about it.
In an interview with Ghanadistricts.com the assembly member for Vittin Electoral Area, Yakubu Rufai disclosed that the lack of classrooms is one of the area’s biggest educational challenges as an estimated number of about 78 pupils or more are sometimes sandwiched in one classroom.
He noted that the task of teaching over populated class is an arduous one for teachers since most of the pupils hardly concentrate on the lessons which to a large extent affect their academic performance.
Yakubu Rufai expressed his gratitude to the assembly for this project in his area hoping that the educational development would also increase the number of intellectuals in the area.
