The management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has outlined harsh punishments to some final year students and senior high schools for the reported acts of indiscipline carried out in the said schools.

In a letter for press release, GES condemned all the acts of indiscipline and vandalism that occurred in the various schools by some students and teachers. The following punishment was meted out to some students:

1. Dismissal

Several students whose names where specifically mentioned in the letter were dismissed outrightly and are required to leave the school compound upon immediate notice. The students involved were from the following schools: Sekondi College, Tweneboa Kodua, Battor and Juabeng Senior High schools.

2. Full payment for collateral damage

Each student in schools where acts of vandalism were carried out are required to pay the full cost of the damage. Their results will be witheld until they fully reimburse the cost of damaged items.

3. Barred Invigilators

Three named teachers each from one of these schools; Tweneboa Kodua, Sekodi College and Kade Senior high schools were barred from invigilation. They were further handed over to security agencies for investigation.

Henceforth, the examination centre of the Tweneboa Kodua SHS has been relocated to Ofori Panin SHS.

Below is a copy of the letter from GES for your perusal:

It is hoped that these students will learn that discipline and not just the acquisition of knowledge is vital.

It can be recalled that several videos of some WASSCE candidates students calling out President Akufo Addo for not helping them out has gone viral. Such acts have never been seen before.

All such acts have been condemned.

Is the lack of studies due to the double track system in SHS responsible for such desperate acts of mayhem in our Senior High Schools? What do you think?
