8th June 2012, 12:27 AM
Teachers have been cautioned against turning their classrooms into political areas, by engaging in partisan politics.

“You will lose the respect of students who do not belong to your political party,” Mr. Peter Antwi-Boasiako, Gomoa West District Coordinating Director, has said.

Mr. Peter Antwi-Boasiko, Gomoa West District Co-ordinating Director said. He was speaking at a get-together organized at Apam, by the District Director of Education, Ms Augusta Kyeaa Sarpong, for more than 140 heads of public basic schools in the district, to show appreciation to them for their hard work in the past year.

He pointed out that the success of education in the district depends on the contributions of both headteachers and their staff, whom he likened to a football team and said “whether a team can win or lose a match depends on the captain (the headteacher) and the players (the staff)”.
Mr. Antwi-Boasiako cautioned them against misuse of school funds, saying “lack of accountability can destroy your administration and your reputation”.

In a speech read on his behalf, the District Chief Executive, Mr. Theophilus Aidoo-Mensah, pledged the assembly’s support for the district directorate of education, in its quest to improve the standards of education in the area.
