The assistant director for administration of Africa’s Children Aid Society Incorporated (ACAS), a local NGO, is calling on the government through the Ministry of Education to close all televised soccer games, as well as play station games for students in the country during school hours.
Mr. George F. Vanweh made the statement on Tuesday, December 17, at our McDonald Streets office’s in Monrovia.
According to Vanweh, if such action is not taken seriously it has the propensity to cause serious setback in our school system of this country.
He added that the children were no longer paying attention to their lessons but rather watching football and play video games.
“So I’m using this medium to call on the Government and MOE to stop all the Football show activities or tell the operators to stop them for entering,” he intones.
The assistant director for administration told our reporter that during there assessment conducted in the fifteen schools across Montserrado County, it was discover that, 85 percent of students in the elementary and secondary schools do not write and read perfectly.
