CEO Says Students Fail Exams Due To ‘Low Attention’
By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent
ROBERTSPORT, May 16 (LINA) - Grand Cape Mount County Education Officer (CEO) Dwight Harvey has blamed the mass failure of the county’s students in the West African Examinations Council exams on “low attention given to children’s education.”
He said rather than putting more time in the children’s education, school administrators were in the constant habit of taking students to programs that have no impact on their academic pursuit.
Harvey made the statement Friday at the Robbertsport High School in Robertsport, when he presented assorted text books to the school.
He said the text books, which include literature, science, mathematics and computer education, were donated by Grand Cape Mount County acting Superintendent Tenneh S. Kpadebah and the county former senatorial aspirant Elizabeth Armstrong.
He then warned school administrators to attach seriousness to the children’s education in order to brighten their future.
“The time has come for school administrators to design programs that will promote sound and quality education that enable our students compete with other students in the sub-region,’ the CEO stressed.
Receiving the donation, the Vice Principal for Instruction of Robertsport High School, John Mussah, thanked the donors for the textbooks and said it will help immensely in enlightening the students.
