JUST IN: EduWatch calls for interdiction of Duadaso SHS headteacher over exam malpractices
Africa Education Watch, an education think tank, has called on the Ghana Education Service to promptly arrest Peterson Aning, the headmaster of the Duadaso Senior High Technical School in the Bono Region, and several of his employees for indulging in examination malpractices.
According to a Corruption Watch investigation, the school’s headmaster and employees reportedly conspired with invigilators to monitor major cheating by applicants for the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
Speaking to Citi News, Kofi Asare, Executive Director of the Education Think Tank, claimed the activities violated the GES’s code of conduct, prompting the request for a full-scale investigation.
“We witnessed headmasters leading a team of instructors in corruption, drafting answers for students and dictating for pupils to write in plain front of teachers and invigilators.”
Africa Education Watch has called on the GES to close the All for Christ Senior High Technical School in the Bono Region for committing a similar offense.
According to Mr. Asare, the institution “has garnered notoriety for being the epicenter of examination misconduct in Ghana.”
“I believe it is time for the education service to use its authority… and close the school,” he stated.
Mr. Asare went on to say that the school’s “continued existence is antagonistic to the interests of the Ghanaian public.”
“We aim to persuade WAEC to remove or permanently cancel All For Christ Senior High School’s license or center accreditation.”
