Ghanaians react to the new development in Wesley Girls' SHS

Netizens who reacted to the post commended him for putting for speaking up for the young girl.

Gilbert Aggrey-Fynn:

I know someone who attended Wesley Girls and got 3 Fs, I can even tag her and she would confirm but it's not necessary... It's not about the school it's all about you the individual!

Livingstone Agyeman:

"Miraculously changed." It is easy to infer that someone tampered with the system from the backend for this to have happened.How many learners may have been supercharged because they do not have a KOFI ASARE to amplify their plight?

Emmanuel Bagyo:

You are doing a great service to mother Ghana and to humanity. God bless you.

Let's identify the strengths of students

Speaking to on the issue, Mr Kofi Asare opined that the BECE is a placement examination hence calls for students who score below aggregate 25 to re-sit the exams should not be encouraged.

“The BECE is a placement exam, not a terminal exam. The main purpose is to determine who attends which school. That's all. Once there is enough school space for those scoring Aggregate 54, why deny them access by asking them to re-sit?”

He also stressed the need for measures to be put in place to identify the strengths of every student regardless of what aggregate he or she might get.

“What we must do is to identify the true strengths of every student so that, even if they obtain Aggregate 54 in BECE, we are able to identify their interests and help them pursue at the secondary level. It could be skills-TVET” he added.
