Deboardenise culpable students in WASSCE riots – GES directs schools

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has directed school authorities to deboardenise any student established to have been involved in any of the protects and vandalism activities recorded in certain Senior High Schools.

This comes after several viral videos on social media platforms showed some students perpetrating acts of violence and vandalising school properties over strict invigilation.

But the GES’s Director-General, Prof Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa in a statement described the behaviour exhibited by some of the students as appalling.

He noted that any destruction of school property should be surcharged against students found guilty of the riot adding that criminal acts committed should be reported to the police for investigation.

“Directors have been directed to take actions on all such misconduct and submit reports to the Director-general immediately.”

Mr Opoku-Amankwa further urged parents to desist from making pleas on behalf of their wards who are found culpable of any of the activities.

“Ghana needs educated an disciplined citizens in its forward march to development and that no student is above the law.”
