The Ghanaian Times is calling on parents to show more interest in the academic performance of their wards. Citing an instance of Prempreh College withdrawing 25 students for non-performance, the paper believes with consistant warning to parents, such parents could do more to better the lots of their wards. Although the paper share the pains of the parents and guardian of the affected students and parents considering the cost of investments, in their children, the nation's future cannot be built on lazy students who do not take their lessons seriously. To the paper, the action by the school will put fear in other students who have the tendency to foul about. The paper said the action against the 25 students must therefore be a wakeup call to all students to be serious with their studies. It is the hope of the paper that, the affected students will learn their lesson and encourage themselves to pull their weight if ever they have a second chance.
