The Catholic Bishop of the Techiman Diocese in the Bono East Region, Most Rev Dominic Yeboah Nyarko, has cautioned policymakers not to make any educational reforms that will mar the future of innocent school children.
Bishop Yeboah Nyarko said this at the 25th Anniversary celebration of the St Francis Seminary School at Buoyem in the Techiman Municipality.
He said: “politicians who have a limited time in office cannot take a landmark decision without the stakeholders.”
Bishop Yeboah Nyarko said there should be a holistic and effective collaboration between the missionary school authorities, education technocrats, and parents whose wards finally suffer the consequences of any bad policy.
The Rector of the St Francis Seminary, Rev Father Martin Oduro Bilson, said the school had a brighter future, but was riddled with multiple challenges.
The Bono East Regional Minister, Mr. Kofi Amoakohene, commended the Techiman Catholic Diocese for immense support in the development in the area.
He said no government can deny the fact that the Catholic Church had done so well in terms of the socio-economic development of the country.
Mr Amoakohene noted that the discipline and quality of education offered by Catholic schools stand tall and deserve commendation.
The Minister was accompanied by the Deputy Minister for Education, Dr Osei Yaw Adutwum, and the Bono East Deputy Regional Minister, Mr Martin Oti Gyarko, among others.
