Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service Disciplinary measures for Schools have been vividly demonstrated.

 

To hit the nail on the head, The Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service have come to realization that, their directive given to schools which was synonymously depicting “Operation no punishment of students, is rather doing more harm than good.

 

 

According to the public Relation Officer  for GES, It is needful that standardized Criteria for handling Disciplinary Issues in Schools are clearly stated and and electively applied without nepotism, favouritism or tribalism.

 

The option the Ministry opted for was to institutionalized a Dean or Department mainly for tackling disciplinary issues.

 

 

The authorities believed this is the ultimate and very descent way of suppressing recalcitrant behaviours in schools.

 

 

The public Relation Officer for Ministry of Education, Kwasi Kwarteng made those pronouncement on Citi news.

 

He added that, this body of disciplinary Affairs or enforcement will ensure the direct transmission of disciplinary issues from schools to the Board for reliable and concrete decisions to be taken.

 

 

He admittedly said, the rate at which disciplinary issues are escalating most especially in our Senior Secondary Schools and Tertiary institutions nowadays, calls for immediate and adequation attention and intervention.

To Mr. Kwarteng, the officer in charge of disciplinary issues will work hand in hand with the guidance and counseling coordinators in both Senior High Schools and Tertiary institutions across the sixteen regions of the country.

 

What Really called for this transformation?

 

1)  Senior High Schools.

Almost all the old existing Senior High Schools in Ghana including Technical and Vocational  Education and Training (TVET) have engaged themselves in demonstration before either previously or presently, leading to the destruction of life and vandalization of school properties.

 

Students especially third years, take demonstration as a master hobby. Most of these students demonstrate over pertinent issues like; food, religious discriminations, relationship issues, mobile phones usage and among other.

 

Few years back, students after they have written their integrated science paper as WASSCE is concerned, came boldly to rain insults on the president. The issue died there.

 

Similarly, some female students of chiana Senior High School did similar thing to the president but of higher gravity and magnification than the previous one.

 

2) Tertiary Institutions

Despite the fact that, most of the students in the various tertiary institutions are parents and old enough to know better, violence leading to distraction of lives and properties still persist in our tertiary institutions.

Not quiet long, UG demonstrated heavily that triggered burning of school properties. This conflict happens concurrently which made court to put injunction on commonwealth hall and Mensah Sarbah hall. We head of UEW demonstration over change of VC. Similar things happened in KNUST, UCC, UDS and others.

 

Looking at the Genesis of the whole story,  all these disturbances started since time memorial. Apart from court, guidance and counseling or school Disciplinary committees are powerless to solve such issues not because they are incompetent.

 

 

The law has over powered the students to the neglection of the School authorities. Gone were the days as much as 50 students can be dismissed straight forward if the harm caused is grievous. This mechanism was serving as a deterrent to others.
