Revoke license, publish names of teachers who engage in exam malpractice – GNECC to GES

General


The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC) has urged the Ghana Education Service(GES) to revoke licenses of teachers who engage in examination malpractice and publish their names in the dailies.

The call comes after three teachers were arrested in Bekawi and two invigilators at Gyinigyini in the Jaman North District on Monday, July 8 which was the first day of the 2024 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

They were picked up by operatives of the National Intelligence Bureau and GES officials.

The examination annually has recorded incidents of malpractices which has raised concerns over the integrity of the exam.

However, speaking to Starr News, Coordinator for the Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC) Bernice Mpare Gyekye said licenses of these teachers should be revoked to serve as a deterrent to others.

‘This is where GES should take strict measures to make sure that these teachers are severely punished and the learners are also punished according to law. And then
we publish them with their names and pictures all over the media and this is going to serve as a deterrent for others to desist from such acts.

‘For teachers who are aiding students to engage in malpractice, their licenses should be withdrawn with immediate effect and even if possible prosecution should come in. When this is done it will deter others from doing same.’
