I will sack you if students fail WASSCE, BECE - Education minister warns school heads

Education minister, Mathew Opoku Prempeh, has issued the most scary warning to all headmasters in Ghana.

I will sack you if students fail WASSCE, BECE - Education minister warns school heads

The minister says he will sack them if 90 percent their students fail their BECE or WASSCE exams. Addressing heads of senior high schools (SHS) in Kumasi as part of a two-day familiarization tour to the Ashanti Region the minister fumed that his ministry would not continue to accommodate school heads who superintend over consistent poor performance.

"Any school head who superintends over a failure of over 90% cannot be allowed to continue operation without accounting to the Ghana Education Service (GES)," he stated.

The minister's orders follow the poor performance of students in the WASSCE and BECE papers. In 2016, 32 percent of the students obtained the pass grade of A to C6 in the core subjects and 19.82 percent of students obtained D7-E8 which most tertiary institutions consider as a fail score. About 38.10 percent of students had F9.
