He said Government alone could not shoulder all the responsibilities of the country™s development and that the efforts of parents are needed to ensure the total development of their children.
Mr Amana made the call during a meeting of stakeholders at Nkoranza to review the performance of pupils in basic schools in the Municipality.
It was organised by the Nkoranza South Municipal Directorate of Education and sponsored by the USAID Educational Project, Partnership for Accountable Governance in Education (PAGE).
The PAGE project is to ensure the provision of quality education delivery in 46 selected education districts in the country with their principal focus on basic schools.
Mr Amana deplored the attitudes of some parents who failed to contribute to the education of their children and expected Government to provide all their educational needs.
œAs the Government provides infrastructure, free school uniforms, textbooks and laptop computers, parents should show appreciation and support, œhe said.
Madam Philippa Banson, Nkoranza South Municipal Director of Education, called for collaboration between teachers and parents to promote teaching and learning in schools.
She commended the USAID/PAGE project for supporting the efforts of the assembly and education in the Municipality as this had led to the creation of a congenial atmosphere for teaching and learning.
Nana Takyi Baffoe II, Odikro of Tom, near Nkoranza and Member of the Municipal Education Oversight Committee, called on parents to respect teachers and carefully monitor the activities of their children.
