- The hope of a 15-year-old street boy to continue his education at the Presbyterian Boys Senior High School (PRESEC) at Legon in Accra has been dashed
- Information available shows the school placement gave the boy, whose identity is yet to be established, his fourth choice
- A social media user has appealed to some stakeholders in the educational sector to come to the aid of the street boy
YEN.com.gh is in possession of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) results of a 15-year-old street boy.
The boy, whose identity is yet to be established reportedly scored Six 1s, two 2s and one 3.
Information available shows that he wishes to go to medical school but he is currently facing a challenge.
The school placement system, reports say, denied him access to his first choice school, which was Presbyterian Boys Senior High School (PRESEC) at Legon in Accra.
He was however posted to his fourth choice school and this has not gone down well with one Yaw Frimpong, a social media user.
Frimpong wondered if it was a system error, a mistake made by someone or a normal occurrence even if the candidate is a deprived child in society.
He therefore called on the Ghana Education Service (GES), the minister of education, Matthew Opoku Prempeh, and the alumni of PRESEC to come to the boy’s aid.
In other news, a former head of the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), Emile Short, has argued that churches in Ghana are corrupt.
He explained that people pastors and preachers are involved in corrupt practices and it has become a worrying trend.
Short said churches should be seen as holy places where the leaders guide their members in all truth and honesty.
In his opinion, there is a need for the clergy to deal with corruption and refrain from encouraging it by demanding monies from church members.
