Let society feel the impact of your researches –


We don't educate people for the fun of it but for enlightenment.Now what's the meaning of enlightenment to Ghanaians?Remember that many of this modern day scientific development started in the "middle ages" where the philosophy of enlightenment was capital.It's up to our political leaders to design policies that will enlighten people about their environment.
It seems our educationists are careless about the importance of environment.I'm saying this because I was born in Sekondi,very close to the beach and through out my school ages didn't have any opportunity to learn about the beach,swimming or any other activity going on there.On the contrary,here in France;school children who don't even live around any beach do learn swimming as early from primary school.It forms part of their education because they go through proper training and receive certificates for 50 metres and 100 metres if they qualify.Why is swimming not important for Ghanaian school children?The answer is negligence,our policy makers only think of big cars,big houses and nothing else.Thank you.
