The Africa Education Watch has recommended the Ghana police for taking action against the Headmaster whose students got drowned after he had sent them to his farm.
30 Jhs students were sent to the headmaster's farm on Friday, November 12, 2021, and on their return, the boat they were traveling on capsized in the River and nine students out of the total lost their lives.
According to EduWatch, “It is unbelievable that just one school day before the inception of this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), a headteacher would mobilize 30 students, including BECE Candidates from his school to work on his farm".
“We applaud the swift action of the GES and the Ghana Police Service to enforce existing rules and the law,” it added.
They also urged the GES to put in place a system to receive complaints on the issue.
“We call for the setting up and publishing of complaint phone lines at all GES Offices to enable parents to report offending staff for punitive action,” it said.
