In an interview with Radio Don Bosco in Tonj, Bongo Primary School headmaster, Abraham Nhial Dheiu appreciated BBC for building the capacity of parents and teachers to boost education saying that, the training is based on girl child education and how parents should supervise their daughters who are studying in school.
Nhial added that the BBC Media Action team are planning to visit all the primary schools in the state to pass the same skill to teachers and guardians.
One of the parents also appreciated the training initiative, terming it useful since she learnt the role that each individual has to play in educating children, she also pointed out that some parents are irresponsible hence do not follow up to know how their children are faring on in school.
