2 days ago Five final year students of the St Johns Senior High School in Accra were on Tuesday prevented from partaking in the ongoing WASSCE exams by their school authorities because they carried “bushy hair”.

According to the affected students, the internal supervisor of the school, Mr Gyedu, personally sacked them from the exams hall when they were just about writing the Christian Religious Studies (CRS) paper.

“Mr Gyedu and Mr. Ofori didn’t allow the five of us to write the CRS paper even though we pleaded with. He said we were carrying bushy hair.

 

Following the capricious exercise of power displayed by two tutors of Mile 7-based St. John’s Grammar School in Accra to cruelly deny three final year female students from writing one of their final examination papers in the ongoing West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE), the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service, Mr. Jacob Kor has stepped in.

The deputy minister of Education in charge of Pre-tertiary, Hon. Alex Kyeremeh gave the assurance that he will follow the matter to its logical conclusion.

Information available to Peacefmonline.com indicates that the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service, Mr. Jacob Kor has visited St. Johns Grammar School and upon what he gathered, has ordered the school’s authorities to ensure the three final year female students who suffered injustice at the hands of their tutors be made to write the rest of their exams.

Mr. Kor again ordered the school to totally foot the bills comprising tuition and registration fees of the three affected final year students for the next November/December private examination, especially, re-writing their elective Christian Religious Studies (CRS) subject.

The Director-General of the GES further assured that investigations will continue to find an appropriate punishment for those involved in the incident if they are found culpable.

What puzzles me is one can imagine the number of students, mainly girls who might have been deprived from their exams simply because these men refused to let me do so. In this case the provided a stupid reason, but what if the next case they provided a justifiable reason but with bad motives. If you ask me they should be fired. Had these girls not complaint to the press, they would be struggling to raise money for an exam retake. Appalling, and embarrassing!

this is absolutely wrong! I don’t even get the link between bushy hair and studies or exams. These teachers need to be taught a huge lesson.

Ghana needs to pass a new law concerning girls cutting their hair, The sun here is too hot for the low cuts.

I remember my sister going through some ugly scissors cut because she had bushy hair in her final year. This hair issue doesn’t make sense.

Glad the Director of GES took necessary actions against this.
