The Director of Education in Rumammer County has expressed his regret at the failure of the meeting, which was announced last Saturday at Mabouny primary School. The goal of the meeting was to agree on a mechanism for school maintenance before the start of the new year.
Santino Aleu Madut told (Abyei FM) that the parents’ failure to attend led to the failure of the meeting.
“I am telling the parents who did not go to the meeting at Mabuny primary school that the goal of the meeting is not in my interest, but in your interest, especially your children. So, we should not depend on few people to do the job. This work is for all of us. Any person who has a child in the school must attend the meeting and hear what would be decided. So, joining hands together will help. Myself as the county education director I can not work alone in the office”
More than ten schools among 22 schools in the county need maintenance.
