Mr Amidu Issahaku Chinnia, Deputy Upper West Minister, has called on stakeholders in the education sector to work together to tackle growing poor performance of students in schools in the Region.

He made the call following complaints by stakeholders about mounting indiscipline and poor academic outcomes among students, particularly those in senior high schools, at the time government was making huge investment in the education sector.

Mr Chinnia, who was speaking during the 25th anniversary celebration of Tumu Senior High Technical School, advised the students to focus on their academic studies and read more books as well as eschew insubordination and rowdiness, which drew back performance.

The anniversary was the theme: “Resources for Quality Technical and Vocational Education: The Role of Stakeholders”.

He said government was focusing its attention on technical education to develop the human resource base of the country, stating: “Countries that have developed in manufacturing and industrial sector focused much on technical and vocational education”.

Mr Chinnia added that government had a robust plan to industrialise Ghana by setting up factories through the introduction of one-district one-factory policy to provide jobs and incomes for households.

Therefore, he said the concentration of government on technical and vocational education was meant to produce the needed human capital for the industrialisation efforts, which would equip the youth in Upper West with the right skills to work and establish themselves in life.

He added that rolling out of the double track system to tackle mass enrolment in senior high schools was an innovative way to address the challenge and gave every Ghanaian child the opportunity to access senior high school education.

He said the outcry about falling standard of education in the Region by stakeholders could be addressed by collectively working together to tackle the challenge.
