The Ghana Education Service (GES) has dismissed 4 teachers and transferred 4 others over sexual misconduct at Ejisuman Senior High School in the Ashanti Region.
In a letter dated June 14, 2018, to the Ashanti Regional Director of GES it stated that: “Management accepts the recommendation that the following teachers should be transferred from the school: a) Sampene Badu Frank b) Baba Sandow c) Henry K Agyeman Ahmed d) Isaac Boafo.”
The four have been directed to “sign bonds to be of good behavior during the period of their employment with the Service.”
It stated: “Management directs that the appointment of the following staff should be terminated a) Moses Asmah b) Isaac Amponsah.”
Two others, according to the letter, have also had their appointments terminated over their conduct. They are Messrs Murphy Osei and Andrew Adu-Asabere.
“Management endorses the report in principle and reiterates that “the education of children of the country has largely been entrusted into the hands of the Ghana Education Service. This places members of the Service whatever, their role in a special position of responsibility which requires exceptionally high standards of behavior and conduct,” the letter stressed.
It added: “It is the expectation of Management that staff of the Service whatever their role will live beyond reproach, especially in their relationships with their students and colleagues.”
The GES set up a special committee to investigate allegations of sexual misconduct against some teachers at Ejisuman SHS.
This came after 10 female students at the school alleged that they were forced by some of the teachers to stroke their manhood until they ejaculate as punishment.
Nine teachers in all appeared before the committee, however, the report, cleared them of penetrative sex with the students.
