Parents blamed for immorality among youth

Accra, Aug 16 GNA - Mr. Yaw Buansi Opoku, Quantity Surveying Consultant, partly blamed parents for the recent upsurge of immorality and criminal activities among the youth in the country.

He said some parents spent most of their time engaging in economic activities and spent little time with their children at home.

Mr. Opoku was speaking at the graduation and prize-giving day of California Star School Complex on the theme:"Education the Best Legacy for the child", in Accra at the weekend,

He said child training should the collective duty of parents and teachers and said it was wrong to shift the responsibility to teachers alone.

Mr. Edward Manu, Proprietor, called on parents to pay their children's school fees on time and provide them with their basic needs to facilitate teaching and learning.

He appealed to the Ghana Education Service to help the school acquire text books and learning materials.

Mr. Manu appealed to individuals and organisations to aid the school to build a computer laboratory to ensure teaching and learning of Information and Communication Technology.

The school children treated the audience to cultural display and those who excelled academically received prizes.
