GES Issues Another Directive For Final Year JHS And SHS Students

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has issued a circular to all regional directors of education, requesting that any criminal acts committed by final-year students in junior and senior high schools be reported to the police and prosecuted.

According to the Service, after registering for the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) and the West African Secondary Schools Certificate Examinations, students have a higher likelihood of truancy (WASSCE).

Some of the candidates are accused of refusing to attend classes on a regular basis, while others are accused of engaging in "undesirable" behaviors such as drug use, bullying, wearing inappropriate clothing, using cell phones, and blatant disregard for school rules and regulations.

"This is an act that the GES considers to be a major misconduct by students," the GES stated in a circular issued on Thursday, June 9 by Director-General Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwaa.

Defaulting students should face sanctions such as de-boarding, writing exams under police/parent escort, and being dismissed from the exam hall to write the papers, according to the report.
