Be focused and reset roles in your ward’s education -Regional Minister

In recent times, there appears to be a shift in roles and responsibilities from parents to teachers, where the burden of educating children is left at the doorstep of teachers and managers of education.

According to the Bono Regional Minister, Justina Owusu Banahene, the role of parents and guardians in the character moulding of their children and wards has been relegated to the background.

“This role has been largely abandoned for the classroom teacher, who is entrusted with the additional burden of character moulding of all children he or she engages,” the Regional Minister observed during the launch of the 2022 Ark FM/Cowbell Brain Challenge.

“It is, therefore, important that the focus of parents is reset to this fundamental obligation,” she pointed out.

Madam Owusu Banahene, a teacher by profession, stressed the importance of instilling seeds of leadership at a younger age to offer children the opportunity to build a strong foundation.

According to her, research showed that leadership does not start in the classroom, but also begins when children are taken through physical activities.

Madam Owusu Banahene noted that it was noteworthy to declare the government’s appreciation for the role institutions and organisations play to complement the Education Ministry and Ghana Education Service (GES).
