Revoke license, publish names of teachers who engage in exam malpractice – GNECC to GES


The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC) has urged the Ghana Education Service (GES) to revoke the licenses of any teachers caught involved in examination malpractice and to publicize their names in the newspapers. This request comes after the arrest of three teachers in Bekawi and two invigilators at Gyinigyini in the Jaman North District on Monday, July 8. The arrests occurred on the first day of the 2024 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

They were picked up by operatives of the National Intelligence Bureau and GES officials. The examination annually has recorded incidents of malpractices which has raised concerns over the integrity of the exam. However, speaking to Starr News, Coordinator for the Ghana National  Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC) Bernice Mpare Gyekye said the licenses of these teachers should be revoked to serve as a deterrent to others.

“This is where GES should take strict measures to make sure that these teachers are severely punished and the learners are also punished according to law. And then we publish them with their names and pictures all over the media and this is going to serve as a deterrent for others to desist from such acts.

“For teachers who are aiding students to engage in malpractice, their licenses should be withdrawn with immediate effect and even if possible prosecution should come in. When this is done it will deter others from doing same.”
