Perturbed parent in the Eastern Region threaten to sue teachers.

Some perturbed parents residing at Asuogyaman in the Eastern region are all ready to sue the Director of Education in the area following an order to have students line-up by the road side to give a warm welcome to the President.

The parents said that the act of instructing young school children stand in the scorching sun only to wave at the president is harmful to the health and safety of the children.Leader of the Concerned parents,Emmanuel Ofori Asante, stated that the president was not visiting the Region for educational purposes and so therefore they do not see why the school children should lined up under the blazing sun just to wave at him.

“We have pleaded with the district director of education in Asuogyaman to rescind his decision. If she does not listen to us, we will advise ourselves. We took our children to school to go and learn and not to stand under the scorching sun to wave presidents.

“The president is not going to make a stop at where the children will be lined up and so it is unnecessary to line them up to wave at a president,” he told Francis Abban on the Morning Starr.monitored by

He added: “Waving at the president will not add any value to the lives of the students.
We don’t have a problem with the commissioning of the 1d 1f project by the president but for our children to just go and wave at the president, it doesn’t add up,” he said.

He added that “for the concerned parents, we are about 21. We do not have the backing of the authorities in the community. We are yet to inform a chief in the community about this arrangement.”

The president begins his 3-day working visit to his home town the Eastern Region. The visit is part of the President’s efforts to touch base with the people and to  keep an eye on how his policies are affecting Ghanaians.
