Mr. Angel Carbonu, who is the President of the National Graduate Association of Teachers (NAGRAT), says that Ghana’s education system is in shambles because the children of lawmakers don’t go to public schools.
He says that most leaders send their kids to the best schools in the country or even outside the country. Because of this, he says, they don’t care about how bad things are in public schools.
Angel Carbonu said this in an interview with OKAY FM in Accra.
He said that politicians know about the problems in public schools and have the data to prove it, but since the problems don’t touch them directly, they have ignored them and let them keep happening.
“They don’t send their kids to public elementary schools, so they don’t care what happens there or what kinds of problems kids have to solve. They know what’s going on because they have people who work in information and security. He said, “The problem is that they don’t care.”
He went on to say, “If a famous person had died in the area, money would have been found to pave the roads or help build the school. So why is there a school in a poor neighborhood and nothing can be done? We as a people are losing track of what’s important, and I don’t think anyone is taking charge.”
“We’ll have to stir things up a bit to get GetFund to work for the people. He said, “There will need to be a review so that no government can come in and use the fund for something other than what it was meant for.”
