- 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 Legit.ng 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 starts 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.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that there are geniuses around the world who do awe-inspiring things that leave people wondering the planet they must have come from.
This is the story of a nine-year-old primary five pupil of Carol School in Lagos, Siju Olawepo, who is able to tell the day of the week of any year without checking the calendar.
It will not be out of place to say Siju is a genius and a boy who definitely will do great things. The boy was discovered by an ICT teacher in the school, and he is on his way to becoming a star.
His parents did not know he had this rare talent until the ICT teacher noticed it in him. Since Siju's discovery, his school has set up a special curriculum for him, allowing him to work at his own pace.
