The National Union of Ghanaian Students has described as harsh, decision by the Ghana Education Service to direct students deemed to have misconducted themselves.

The students engaged in examination malpractices and other acts of indiscipline in the ongoing WASSCE which has compelled the GES to met out sanctions.

The GES has dismissed some students and banned them from partaking in the examination in their schools, while others have been deboardinised.

However, reacting to the measures taken by the GES to restore discipline, the NUGS insists the actions are harsh and ought to be reconsidered.

Exam malpractices to be a thing of the past as gov’t moves to supply WAEC students with prescribed maths sets

NUGS says “That the punitive measure of dismissing the students from the schools and barring them from continuing with the examinations which they have already started is too harsh and should be reconsidered. The Union believes that punitive measures should be meant to reform recalcitrant students, and not to have consequences that may jeopardize their educational futures.”

They appealed that “the GES takes cognizance of the times we find ourselves and it’s already undesirable consequence on students i.e. the COVID-19 pandemic and its psychological effects on students.”

“That the managements of the schools and the Ghana Education Service should
exact other punitive measures for these students and allow them to complete their
studies and examinations”.
