Ghana's former High Commissioner to India, Sam Pee Yalley, has called on the Ghana Education Service to find a lasting solution to the reopening of schools amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
According to him, the longer the children stay at home, the more they begin to adopt strange behaviors.
Speaking on UTV’s “Adekye Nsroma”, Sam Pee Yalley recounted how he met one of his grandchildren mimicking cartoons.
“I was shocked to see one of my grandchildren mimicking cartoon characters. Thus if they jump she will jump, if they sleep she will do same…something that is developing at a very wrong age.
“By now they should have been singing rhymes but due to covid-19 and its issues they are mimicking cartoons. What I am saying is that, within the period a lot of things are happening, the children are learning wrong because from 6am to 6 pm all they do is to watch cartoons and it is not a healthy practice for a nation,” he lamented.
He therefore called on Ghana Education Service (GES) to collaborate with the television stations to develop children program content to help the children as they dialogue for lasting solutions.
