As a measure to improve upon the quality of education in the Gushegu District and the country as a whole, a total of 23 classroom blocks have been built in various schools in the District to solve the challenge of schools under trees.
In an interview with Ghanadistricts.com the Gushegu District Chief Executive Hon. Fuseini Alhassan stated that the newly furnished classrooms would help solve the challenge of inadequate classrooms in the district.
It would also solve the challenge of decongested classrooms in the District which does not create a conducive atmosphere for effective teaching and learning.
He also noted that the lack of adequate classrooms has resulted in a situation where the pupils are forced to learn under trees which is not favourable since the unpredictable weather conditions distract children from learning.
The projects which were funded by Ghana Education Trust fund (GETfund) also include two urinals and a KVIP for the school children to ensure that they stay close to their schools as the lack of these facilities sometimes made the children defecate in the bush far from their school.
Hon. Fuseini Alhassan also disclosed that two bungalows have also been constructed in the District to relieve teachers of accommodation problems adding that a number of teachers have left the district due to accommodation problems.
He was confident that the new houses would lure more teachers to the District to enhance the performances of students in the District.
