Concerned about the poor performance of schools in the Larve Circuit of the South Tongu District, at the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), the Lade Wosornu Foundation, a non-governmental organisation, is collaborating with the South Tongu District Education Office to come out with a three-year strategic plan to improve standards.
Schools in the Larve Circuit of the South Tongu District have over the past five years, recorded poor results in the BECE, with most of the educational institutions obtaining zero per cent pass.
The District Director of Education, Mrs. Angelica Attakey, lauded the Foundation for the initiative to support education in the area.
She said the doors of the District Education Directorate were opened to experts and well-meaning people, who were ready to contribute to the development of education in South Tongu.
Mrs Attakey promised that her outfit would intensify supervision of teaching and learning in schools in the area to improve upon academic performance.
Professor Lade Wosornu, founder of the foundation, who commended the education directorate for collaborating with his group to improve teaching and learning in the area, presented a cheque for GHC5,000 towards the implementation of the plan.
He appealed to individuals and organisations to support the plan to promote education in the area.
