The Ghana Education Service has expressed concerns over the decision by teachers to share pictures on social media of how they are compelled to write the second term examination questions on boards for their pupils to answer.
Reports however suggest that monies needed to print exam questions have not been sent to the schools by the Central government.
Speaking to Francis Abban on the Morning Starr Wednesday, April 3, 2019, spokesperson for the education ministry, Vincent Assafuah, said even though the payment of the capitation grant, which was to be used to print the exam papers delayed, the teachers were wrong to dramatise with the situation.
Writing on the board is not a new phenomenon, how did they write their class test. If that is the only way the poor can get education then so be it.
“Yesterday half of the money they needed to print the papers have been paid. We agree that payment delayed but it shouldn’t be a means of drama by our teachers, I frown at that and it is unacceptable, teachers dramatizing with the situation is uncalled for,” he said.
Assafuah said the act of the teachers dramatising over the failure of printed exam papers was uncalled for and that the money has been paid to the schools.
