Pupils at the Breman Otabilkwaa D/A Basic School in the Central Region’s Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District have asked authorities to improve working conditions for their instructors.
The pupils claim that the teacher’s home in the region is filled with snakes and other venomous critters, which is scaring the teachers away.
As a result, they have requested that a more suitable bungalow be built for their teachers.
The circumstance, they bemoaned, has driven several of their teachers to leave the school or request for transfer to better schools.
The straw that broke the camel’s back was an incident in which a snake invaded the bungalow occupied by a female teacher.
The female teacher was almost killed when a snake entered the room.
Teachers at the school have vowed to cease coming to class until something is done about their teachers’ quarters.
The teacher then stated that five snakes had been killed this week.
In the same room, a scorpion was also killed.
Some parents also complained that new teachers assigned to the area had declined to arrive due to the school’s environment.
The kindergarten block they added was in disrepair and posed a risk to the student’s safety.
