Authorities of the Mampong Technical College of Education in the Ashanti region have shut down the school following mounting threats from more than 200 students planning to burn down the school after they failed their Elective Maths papers.
Reports do indicate that all students who failed the Elective Maths papers risk getting evicted from the school after they further failed their resit papers as well - a development which saw angry students pelt stones at the school in a fierce upheaval.
The students were under the impression that the Elective Maths course was not mandatory and that they had option of choosing and sitting courses in General and Technical subjects.
But the University of Cape Coast to which the College of Education is affiliated had scrapped the options available to the students and made Elective Mathematics a compulsory course.
Failure required that the students re-sit the paper or repeat their Level. About 261 students did not re-sit the paper when the opportunity came.
Meanwhile, police forces there have advised for the school to be shut down yesterday, Monday November 23.
