According to the residents, the lack of classroom block    amalgamated with inadequate classrooms  have been a major hindrance to Education, thereby given room for the high  rate of school drop-out  recorded in  the community over the years.

They are therefore appealing to Government, the district assembly and  NGOs to come to their aid by providing them with classroom block and furniture  to help facilitate smooth teaching and learning in the school.

In the latest development, sources close to the Wa West directorate of education noted that, all schools that were built by the Ghana government in the district  are currently faced with furniture problem, schools: like Tokali D/A primary, Sanuor D/A primary, Kangba primary, Ollotong D/A primary, Buli R/C Primary, Ponyentanga R/C Primary and many other schools are in need of   classroom furniture.
