GES procures printing machines to print examination papers

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has equipped all district education offices in the country with printing machines to be used in the production of examination papers for basic schools.

The move comes after photographs of teachers in some basic schools in the Ashanti region writing examination questions on the chalkboard, went viral as pupils sat for their end of second term examinations.

At a press conference held on Thursday, April 11, 2019 to address some issues in the education sector, Director General of the GES, Kwasi Opoku Amankwa said the teachers’ decision to write the examination questions on the chalkboards was an unnecessary dramatisation of the situation.

He said the printing machines will be available by the beginning of the next term and will be put to use.

“We didn’t tell teachers to write on the chalkboard, we made teachers stop collecting printing fees because there was abuse from schools charging huge money for printing fee.

“We decided that teachers should stop collecting the printing fee and the printing fee should not hinder someone from writing the exams or prevent students from coming to school,PRO of the GES said.
