Cape Coast Technical University: Education Minister Inspects Ongoing Projects

Education Minister, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum has refuted claims that he had enrolled his son in a private senior high school.

The Deputy Ranking Member on the Education Committee of Parliament Dr. Clement Apaak had claimed that Mr Adutwum lost the right to defend the free senior high school after he enrolled his son in a private shs.

Mr Apaak called out the education minister to explain to Ghanaians why he would enroll his son in a private shs instead of the free shs policy he is superintending over.

“His decision to enrol his ward into a private rather than a public SHS suggests that he has no faith in the fSHS he superintendents over. If confirmed, such an action will be a betrayal and a confirmation of the belief that the challenges associated with the implementation of fSHS:

a) Inadequate space and, b) Overburdened teachers and non-teaching staff, c) Inadequate and unwholesome food, d) Erratic and haphazard academic calendar, f) Double track system and g) Culture of silence; have combined to adversely affect the quality of teaching and learning in our public secondary schools.

The Minister has lost the moral right to champion a programme he doesn’t have faith in and ought to do the needful by stepping aside,” he added.

Reacting to this, Mr Adutwum noted that politics has sunk so low wondering why his son will be involved.

He noted that he has no son who is old enough to be in SHS insisting Ghana has the best SHS in the public sector.

“Secondly, I don’t have a son who is old enough to be in a senior high school. So suffice it to say that I have no further comments. My son is not old enough to be in a senior high school. We have the best senior high schools in the public sector,” he said.

2020 WASSCE Malpractices: Swedru Magistrate Court Convicts Students And Teachers For Impersonation

The Agona Swedru Magistrate Court has convicted 7 persons for impersonation in the 2020 West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

The Seven persons include three students, two teachers and two administrators.

The prosecutor recounted in court on Wednesday that one George Agyekum, who is a complainant in the case led WAEC officials around when the final year SHS students were writing the WASSCE at the various Senior High Schools within Agona Swedru and its environs to check the conduct of the examination.

The police prosecutor, Inspector Chare Salia stated the WASSCE officials asked for the index numbers of some of the candidates and verification of their names in the database of WAEC showed there was some impersonation.

The police suspected Coffie Boakye Nana Yaw had impersonated Hotor Saviour; Clement Sarfo had impersonated Tetteh-Courtnay Clinton Larry, and Bawah David had also impersonated John Faati.

Additionally, he stated that Georgina Danso had also impersonated Odamatey Father Justice Nii Laryea while Desmond Oduro also impersonated Coffie Boakye Nana Yaw.

The prosecutor indicated the suspects were arrested and during interrogation, the suspects admitted that it was Richard Nkrumah and Cedric Sefah Akyeampong who contracted them to impersonate Huntor Savior, Tetteh-Courtnay Clinton Larry, John Faati, Odamatey Father Justice Nii Laryea and Coffie Boakye Nana Yaw to write the WASSCE Core subjects for them.

The named persons had earlier successfully written the Integrated Science and Social Studies papers. They had also already written paper two of Core Mathematics and were in the process of writing the Mathematics paper one when they were arrested.

“On August 20, 2020, Nkrumah and Sefah Acheampong who were at large were arrested and they admitted to the offence in their caution statement,” the Prosecutor added.

Georgina Danso, Desmond Oduro and David Bawah, second-year students of the Ngleshie Amanfrom SHS in the Greater Accra Region, were fined ¢1,200 each and barred from taking part in any WASSCE for three years.

An administrator at the Central High School at Agona Swedru, Osman Ahmed, and Clement Sarfo, a staff of the same school were both fined ¢1,200 each. Cedric Sefah Acheampong another teacher at Central High School was also fined ¢2,400.

A teacher at Ngleshie Amanfrom SHS, Richard Nkrumah, alias Emperor, who is also the Assistant Headmaster of Central High School, was sentenced to six months imprisonment.

The convicts initially pleaded not guilty to the charges of impersonation and abetment to commit a crime but they were found guilty at the end of the trial and were subsequently sentenced by the court on Wednesday, July 21, 2021.

After convicting the accused, the presiding magistrate, Isaac Apeatu, hoped that the conviction of the seven persons would serve as a deterrent to many others who have planned and would plan to undertake a similar enterprise.

Mankessim SHS Headmaster Finally Speaks On The Photo Of Students Who Were Captured Smooking Wee In Classroom

Some kids, particularly in high schools, are misbehaving and have gotten into difficulty with the school administration as a result of their behavior.

In this regard, a female teacher from a small school in Migori County found herself in an unusual predicament after a pupil allegedly teased her in front of other kids, causing her to cry.

According to a Facebook post by a local resident, the teacher was giving over Biology test papers when one student requested the teacher to explain a question about dental care that the majority of the students had answered incorrectly.

In response to his teacher’s unclean teeth, the student pressed the teacher to explain how to maintain your teeth clean and healthy.

Things got heated when one of the students pointed out the teacher’s teeth, prompting him to inquire what was stuck on her teeth and whether she didn’t brush well.

She said, “Teacher, I have a question.”

‘Go ahead,’ the teacher said.

“Teacher, I notice you have tiny dirt on your teeth; does this mean you don’t brush them every day?” She inquired.

This question made the entire class giggle, humiliating and embarrassing the teacher.

After learning that the pupils had been making fun of her oral hygiene the upset instructor burst into tears.

She swiftly exited the classroom and reported the incident to the deputy principal’s office.
