The Assemblies are the major beneficiaries of stool land revenue. In view of this, the Talensi District Assembly is the first Assembly in the Upper East Region to utilize its fifty- five per cent (55%) share of Stool land revenue to put up a three unit class room block for the Gatusi community. The only structure in the school was a dilapidated mud room which serve as a class room for the Kindergarten whiles the rest learn under a tree.
