Kade (E/R), Aug. 15, GNA - Mrs Awura Abena Ahwoi, Eastern Regional Director of Education, has said that even though girl-child education is very important, parents and guardians should give equal education to both sexes for the political and socio-economic development of this country.
Mrs Ahwoi said gone were the days when parents looked at educating one sex and neglected the other, believing that one was more important than the other.
She said men and women could equally share responsibilities and therefore parents should not discriminate when it comes to educating their children. Mrs Ahwoi made this observation at the launch of a computer laboratory for the Kade Secondary/Technical School organised by the Kade Concern Citizens Association and Old students of the school at the weekend.
She advised the female students not to discriminate in their choice of subjects of study but they should give equal attention to all, "whether science, mathematics or whatever". Mrs Ernestina Ofori, leader of the Kade Concern Citizens Association, who donated three computers valued at 6.5 million cedis and a cash of 4.5 million cedis to the school.
She expressed the hope that the donation would be used to widen the students' scope of knowledge in the use of computer. 15 Aug. 05
