A schoolteacher of the Presbyterian Junior High in the Upper West Regional capital of Wa has got himself into hot waters after he made a student crawl on the ground with their knees until the skin on that area was peeled off.
Officials of the Ghana Education Service (GES) in the region have taken on the mathematics teacher. Parents with wards in the school have also registered their displeasure with the school.
The name of the victim is unknown YEN.com.gh but Mynewsgh reports that the teacher's name was only given as Mr Ahmed.
Mr Ahmed was looking to punish the student for "making noise in class". The student, a pupil in Form Two, is now reported unable to walk properly.
As the photo above shows, the skin on both knees has literally peeled off.
YEN.com.gh gathers that the student's attempt to close a window caught the attention of the teacher. He explained to the teacher that he was avoiding the sun's contact with his eyes.
The mathematics teacher did not take this for an excuse especially because teaching was in session and he (teacher) felt the student was distracting the rest of the class.
The matter has been reported to the Municipal Police Command, which has since invited the headteacher of the school and the offending teacher for questioning.
The headteacher of the school has refused to comment on the issue, emphasising that the matter is before the appropriate authorities.
