The Dormaa Central Municipal Director of Education in the Bono Region, Rev. Father Kingsley Dwamena Asante, has revealed that his office, in collaboration with all stakeholders in the education system within the Dormaa Central municipality, is diligently working to eradicate examination malpractice at the Dormaa Ahenkro branch of the Ghana Education Service.
The goal is to assist students in safeguarding their external examination results without encountering any form of confrontation.
During an interview with reporters, the education director emphasized that various measures have been put in place to ensure the deployment of qualified examiners to all circuit centers within the municipality.
These examiners will provide teachers and students with the necessary guidelines and approaches for answering examination questions. According to him, this initiative will contribute to a significant reduction in the incidence of examination malpractice in the area.
The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Municipal Education Directorate, Mr. Michael Ignatius Anaisie, also weighed in, stating that, in order to instill discipline among students, the Ghana Education Service Council has established a code of conduct for pre-tertiary level students in the Ghana Education Service.
This code comprises measures and standards designed to enforce discipline in various schools.
Anaisie stressed that violating lawful authorities in school carries consequences.
He further explained that actions such as truancy, refusal to attend assembly, loitering, and examination malpractice are all considered breaches of the established code of conduct by the Ghana Education Council.
Such misconduct calls for severe punishment, serving as a deterrent to others and emphasizing the importance of adhering to disciplinary standards in educational institutions.
