Seven students from Ejisuman Senior High School have been suspended from the school’s boarding facility after they were alleged to have engaged in activities that tarnish the school’s image.
The seven final year students were accused of using a mobile phone – which is prohibited in basic and high schools – to “intentionally upload a video on social media where unprintable words that border on sex were spewed out.”
According to a letter to the Ashanti Regional Director of Education, the suspension took effect from February 6, 2020, pending a final determination of their fate by the school’s Board.
A section of the general public on social media has called on the Ghana Education Service to rescind its decision to suspend the students.
Some people believe that the punishment might not serve any purpose. Thus, the GES should rather focus on helping students use mobile phones to study better.
The campaigners say in a 21st century technological age, preventing the use of mobile phones does more harm than good.
They argue that technology if properly regulated could enhance and advance education in Ghana.
