In preserving the sanctity and integrity of certification exams in second cycle institutions, the Africa Education Watch an education think tank after a series of probes wants the headmaster of Duadaso Senior High Technical School in the Bono Region interdicted alongside some of his staff as the think tank believes they are neck deep into examination malpractice.
In the 2021 West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), a thorough probe conducted by Corruption Watch unravelled how the said headmaster allegedly colluded with invigilators to aid students to cheat in the examination.
Mr Kofi Asare, Executive director of the Think Tank during an interview on Citi FM insisted the alleged actions of the headmaster are a violation of the code of ethics of their profession hence the need for the Ghana Education Service, the authority they are under to investigate the situation.
“We saw headmasters lead a team of teachers engaging in corruption, writing answers for students and dictating for students to write in the full glare of teachers and invigilators.”
Mr Asare also zoomed in on the All For Christ Senior High School in the Bono Region and demanded the GES close down the school citing they are also involved in such practice.
He further pointed out how the school is not far from being an epicentre for exam malpractice in Ghana.
“I think it is time that the education service activates its powers… and close down the school,” he said.
Mr Asare also cautioned that the “continued existence of that school is inimical to the interests of the Ghanaian public.”
“We want to impress on WAEC to withdraw or to permanently revoke the licence or centre accreditation for All For Christ Senior High School.”
