Students attack teachers for not allowing them cheat in WASSCE

Some final year students of a secondary school in Ghana attacked their teachers with stones and other dangerous weapons be ause they did not let them cheat in their final year examinations.

Adomonline reports that the angry students of Zabzugu Senior High School in the Zabzugu district    vandalised school properties, smatched doors, television sets, and windows. They said it was their right to copy or send texts books into the examination hall.

A student who spoke on condition of anonymty, was quoted as saying: “Even though they did not have any pact with their teachers to allow them to cheat, they were reliably informed that teachers from other schools aid their students by allowing them to copy.”

A teacher of the school confirmed the incident, saying he is alive because the students went to his house with stones.

His words: “The students felt they had a right to send their notebooks and textbooks to the examination hall, a right they the teachers are yet to come across in any of the examination regulations.

“As a result, the students mobilized themselves and stormed the school, vandalizing properties and threatening to kill any teacher they came across.”

The teachers have therefore vowed not to supervise or invigilate the rest of the exams unless heavy security was provided.
