GES Condemns Suspension

GES Condemns Suspension

The Ghana Education Service has categorically condemned the authorities of Opoku Ware Senior High School for suspending three of their students indefinitely.

The Public Relations Officer of GES, Jonathan Bettey described the act as wrong.

"We don't encourage homosexuality in our schools. So if a headmaster finds any student in this act, we need to investigate. If there is an iota of truth, then we need to call the culprit, we sit them down and take them through counseling. After counseling if they continue, then we take them through internal suspension,” he said.

He opined that when students are caught in such act they should be counseled and given an internal suspension.

"We are not encouraging indefinite suspension. We are encouraging internal suspension for some few days, less than a week," he said.

Meanwhile, one of the three students who spoke to Starr news in an interview said, he only behaves girly but is not gay.

“They have no evidence that we are gays…it is people saying we are gays because we act girly.

“It is something natural, you just grow up with it you won’t realize how you are acting, how can I be gay when my parents are male and female…what is the sense in it,” he said.
