In another development, Hon. Takyi said, due to the Free Compulsory Universal Basic Education programme (FCUBE), government has absorbed all fees needed to be paid by parents for their children in the primary and junior high schools and stressed that, the programme has helped to increase the enrolment figures in the Basic and Junior High schools and urged the directorate to play their routine supervising role to ensure that teachers report to work at all times to teach the students. He said the office equipment provided by the Assembly will go a long way to help the directorate to keep data on all final year students registered to write the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in the Municipality.
Mr. Tawia, the director in charge of the inspectorate division who received the equipment on behalf of the Tano South Municipal Director of Education thanked the MCE and the Assembly for their kind gesture and promised that the equipment will be used for its intended purposes and also put them into good use.
