The Eastern Regional Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Education Service, Mr. Emmanuel Asiedu Acheampong has stressed that though the lack of adequate teaching and learning materials which adversely affects performances at the Basic Education Certificate Examinations level is regrettable; it shouldn’t be entirely answerable to the rather abysmal performances recorded in both internal and external examinations.

According to the Education Service’s PRO, even though the central store that provides the teaching and learning materials to the various schools sometimes delays in the distribution of these materials, teachers can fall on the capitation grant or still improvise with other means possible to afford the needed teaching and learning materials to enhance performances at the Basic Education Certificate Examination level in the municipality.

He emphasized that teachers are trained personnel who were taught and trained on how to handle the challenges pertaining to the lack of teaching and learning materials amongst others and should not give any excuse for their student’s poor performances, but rather blame themselves (teachers) for not being up to the task under such situations.

Meanwhile, the Public Relations Officer of the Yilo Krobo office of the Ghana Education Service, Mr. Solomon Sackitey has encouraged indigenes of the Municipality, especially the affluent in society to support schools in their communities by assisting them with teaching and learning materials.

He said local mobilization of teaching and learning materials can help control the menace of poor performances at the Basic Education Certificate Examination in the Yilo Krobo Municipality.

The PRO said that philanthropists and traditional leaders in affected communities should come to the aid of poor schools in such communities by providing them with pertinent assistances as and where necessary.

According to him, philanthropists should always strive to take up such responsibilities and not always wait on the Central Government alone to ensure the realization of these tasks in order to enhance performances at the BECE levels in the municipality.
