Parents of Biskan in the Wa East District have lamented the distance their children have to cover after completing class three to continue formal education at Bulenga.
According to them, their school is only up to Class 3, and following that, children have to walk to Bulenga, which is far from their community, to continue from primary four.
Speaking to Info Radio at the community, Mr Abdul Rahaman Adams, a parent, bemoaned that their children are dropping out of school because of the distance they have to trek every day.
He indicated that over 200 children are at home who are not going to school due to the distance.
Madam Barikisu Inusah, a resident, noted that the road is bushy and there are security concerns with the children walking on that road to the school.
She added that the children have to terminate classes before the normal closing hours when it is about to rain because of the deplorable structure of the school.
