Teachers of the D/A Basic School at Ayensikrom Number 1, a community in the Prestea Huni-Valley Municipality on Monday abandoned their classrooms after the school was desecrated with human excreta.
The uncivilized action is said to be an age old practice in the area. The teachers therefore decided to abandon class to register their displeasure with the shameful practice .
When this reporter got to the school premises around 10 am, pupils were still loitering around; only few were in class without teachers.
The assistant head teacher declined to comment on the issue as his boss was not around.
However, one of the teachers, Emmanuel Buabeng said teachers were fed with up with the situation.
“I have been in this school for the past six years and there has not been any year that such misbehavior had not been exhibited. The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and the Chief have asked the community members to desist from such acts, but their calls have been ignored ” Mr. Buabeng said.
He said the teachers will permanently abandon the school if the uncultured attitude continues .
“The P2 madam who is greatly affected has even left the school premises. We have resolved that, if it continues, we (teachers) won’t teach in this community again," he warned.
