Refrain from Indoctrinating Students with your Political Ideologies – Majority Leader to Teachers.

The  Majority Leader and Member of Parliament (MP) for Effutu constituency, Alexander Afenyo-Markin has urged teachers in the area to refrain from indoctrinating students with their political ideologies ahead of the 2024 general elections. He says such practices polarises the educational environment, creating acrimony among students.

He made this statement during the distribution of laptops to teachers from the Effutu municipality as part of his one-teacher-one-laptop initiative.

“It’s an election year, you may have your views on the politics that we’re doing, but people have their views. But as teachers, please avoid unnecessary acrimony in the school. Debate your issues, but don’t let it get out of hand. Don’t let us polarise the educational environment. Your children that you are teaching, don’t extend to them.”

The Majority leader urged them to do their criticism in a healthy atmosphere and also advised them to avoid politics of insult, which will not help the country.

“I should be able to rise on my feet and debate my respected colleague on the other side, Dr. Ato Forson, on issues, and thereafter we can take tea,” he emphasized.

Mr. Afenyo Markin said that getting the opportunity to visit the House of Commons and the United States Congress has had a major impact on his political life, making him realize that politics is one thing, and nation-building is another, because nation-building is critical.
