- A school in the Volta Region called the Gblornu Community Basic School has been without teachers for 20 years
- The primary school with about 200 pupils has been run only by youth volunteers in the town without any salary
- It is indicated that several reports were made to the MP and DCE in charge of the area to no avail
Gblornu Community Basic School located in the North Tongu District of the Volta Region in Ghana has reportedly been without any teacher for 20 years and has been run by volunteering town youth without getting paid.
Information reaching Briefly.co.za indicates that the Gblornu Community Basic School is the only school in the community and the closest GES-staffed school is in another community far away.
For this reason, many school-going-children stay at home because they are unable to walk that long distance to and from school every day.

Reports indicate that the volunteer teachers and concerned community members sent countless letters to the DCE and MP in charge of the area but nothing has been done about the situation.
The school start from Nursery to Primary 6 with a total population of about 200 pupils.
The volunteers wish to inform GES about the predicament and get stakeholders on board to help get trained teachers posted to the community to enable the children to have formal education.
In a similar development, heartbreaking photos of a dilapidated primary school identified as Nkukua Buoho RC Primary School at the Afigya Kwabre South District in the Ashanti Region have popped up.
The photos were shared by a Facebook user named Abeku Adams Ekumfi who was clearly pissed off by the observation. He vented out his frustration, naming the stakeholders who were supposed to ensure the school children studied in comfortable places but did not.
