A seven member committee has be set up by the Ghana Education Service (GES) to investigate allegations of sexual misconduct between teachers and students of Ejisuman Senior High Scjhool. There have been claims that male teachers at the school are having sex with their female students.
The committee is made up of representative from the GES, the Ghana Police Service, the Municipal Assembly, the School’s Board of Governors and the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA). It is chaired by Patrick D. Boateng, and it has been given two weeks to submit its findings.
Mohammed Habib, who is the Municipal Coordinating Director at the official inauguration of the committee, reminded members to be diligent in the assigned task, and do a thorough job to establish the truth or otherwise of the allegations that have triggered a wave of public outcry.
Mr Habib added that, it presents an opportunity for everybody with any shred of evidence relating to the matter to provide it to aid in the investigations.
The committee begun its public hearing today [Wednesday]. Students and teachers of SHS including some chiefs and journalists are expected to appear before it.
The investigations come at the back of reports that some teachers of the school sleep with female students to help them with money to pay their school fees.
