Prempeh College issues roadmap to assist 51 failed students

The 51 students at the centre of controversy at Prempeh College in Kumasi are to benefit from an extended contact hours in school to enable them to catch up with their mates who are in good academic standing.

Aside the extended instructional time, their parents have also been advised to support them with extra tuition by hiring the services of tutors to help them with additional tuition during vacation.

This was contained in a two-point proposal issued by the Board of Governors of the school last week after a two-hour emergency board meeting.

The Chairman of the Board, Lawyer Franklin Kwabena Asamoah, disclosed this to the Daily Graphic after the meeting, which was also attended by the parents of the 51 students.

Directive

The extended contact hours was a directive from the Ministry of Education to the management of the school to find a lasting solution to the problem confronting the students.

On the other hand, the board also came up with the issue of parents hiring the services of other tutors for the students during vacation so that they would catch up with their mates.

Decision

The board, after the meeting, urged the management of the school to write to the Minister of Education spelling out the roadmap showing how the school would be assisting the affected students to make amends in their academic work.

It also decided that a copy of the minutes of the board meeting be added to the roadmap and presented to the Ministry of Education through the Ashanti Regional Director of Education.

Lawyer Asamoah was upbeat that the board, management and staff of the school would continue to work very hard so that the school would continue to be the first port of call for all parents by maintaining the high standard of academic and moral training it offered.

He also pledged the board’s readiness to support the management of the school to bring about the much needed improvement in the  moral and academic training of the students for the school to stand tall among others in the country.

“After this meeting, the school authorities are to move into action by immediately coming out with a plan for the affected students, so that no more time would be wasted by the students,” Lawyer Asamoah said.

Lamentation

The Board Chairman was not happy that almost all the parents of the affected students were among those who either were not attending parent-teacher association (PTA) meetings or were not visiting their children at school to know how they were performing.

He appealed to parents to desist from making it their policy to only pay the school fees of their children and provide them with their needs, but also make it a point to visit them in school to assess how they were doing so they could detect such weaknesses and work towards improving them.
