Views: 168

The Board Chairman of GETFUND, Dr Kwabena Adjei has assured that the government would tackle the imbalances in the provision of infrastructure for schools in the country. He was speaking at the first congregation of the Jasikan College of Education at Jasikan. Dr Adjei, who is a past student of the college, expressed his disgust at the shoddy and poor jobs done on educational projects in the recent past. Elizabeth Amoah-Tetteh, the Deputy Minister of Education told that the government was determined to provide the necessary infrastructure, motivation and directional leadership to develop all colleges of education, as they constituted the bedrock of the nation's educational system. She said government would provide the colleges with ICT wares so that teacher trainees could acquire the skills to enable them teach ICT at the basic level.

Richard Adjei, Chairman of the Governing Council regretted that though the college was established in 1952 it still did not have an auditorium and had not seen any renovation on its old buildings for years. He appealed to GETFUND to construct a library complex and an ICT centre for the college. Henry Ford Karmel, Deputy Minister of Lands and Natural Resources and also Member of Parliament (MP) for the area presented two sets of jerseys and footballs to the college.
