Social media has gone agog after a video of a teacher questioning a student over his decision to dress as a farmer on career day went viral.
The video which was sighted by YEN.com.gh on TikTok showed the boy wearing an oversized long sleeve shirt with trousers and a wellington boot explaining to his teacher why he wanted to become a farmer in future.
Although the face of the teacher was not seen in the video, the tone of her voice and line of questioning suggested she was stunned and upset that the boy opted not to follow in the footsteps of his mates who were dressed up as doctors and nurses.
The teacher's persuasive attempts to get the boy to change his desire to become a farmer didn't work as he insisted that farming is a dominant occupation in his family.
