The Ghana Education Service(GES) has issued a statement which comes as an official directive to all teachers across the country Ghana to start conducting exams on chalkboards/blackboards.
In the statement sighted by Gossips24.com, GES also ordered teachers and head teachers who have taken monies from parents to conduct end of term exams to return them with immediate effect.
“No penny should be collected from any Pupil or Parent as fees for the various set of Examinations.
Head teachers are at liberty to write Examination Questions on the Chalkboard.
Head teachers who have contracted Examination Consortiums should as a matter of urgency abrogate those contracts.
Monies collected from Pupils and Parents towards the writing of this term’s Exams should be returned to them with immediate effect. The Examination Units of GES across the country are to ensure that the monies reach Parents and report to the District Directors of Education.
The Examination Units of the various Districts should monitor the End of Year Examinations and report outcomes to their respective Directors of Education.
The West Municipal Director of Education has directed that the above information be strictly adhered to and should any Head teacher do otherwise, he, or she, would face the full rigors of the law.”
Many schools have already been thrown into a state of confusion most especially as next week marks their exams week.
Many teachers are of the view that how could 40 objective questions have plausible answers be copied on the board including it’s section B’s.
Anyhow it goes, Ghana’s education system has seemingly been messed up by our leaders.
