Four head teachers have been cautioned by the GES for allowing pupils join a demonstration held by the NPP.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) said head teachers who allowed pupils to take part in the ‘Won gbo’ demonstration organised by the New Patriotic Party will be sanctioned.
According to Deputy Education Minister, Okudzeto Ablakwa, the four admitted guilt and apologised after being queried, but the GES is looking “into the matter so that full disciplinary action will be carried out.”
Head teachers of the Mantse Takie 1 and 3 Primary (Christiana Hanson Nortey), Liberty Avenue 1 and 4 (Ernestina Ofori Attah) , Liberty Avenue 3 (Magarete Amankra) and Reverend Ernest Bruce Memorial School (Lucy Kanyagui Adeku) have been cautioned by the Ghana Education Service as a first step in the disciplinary processes which have begun.
He described the pupils who were captured by news outlets chanting uncomplimentary songs about the President as a breach of rules and regulations by the Service.
Speaking on Radio Gold’s flagship programme ‘Alhaji and Alhaji’, Mr Ablakwa said “We are doing this not because we want to victimise anybody, but we want to ensure that all policy and guidelines are respected by all: that our children are safe and are protected.
