Don't prevent fee-owing students from writing WASSCE – GES warns
The Ghana Education Service (GES) has cautioned heads of Senior High School (SHS) to desist from preventing final year students who owed school fees from writing the ongoing West Africa Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE).
A memo signed by the Director General of the GES, Prof Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa to the Regional Directors of the GES said it had come to the attention of management that some heads of SHS are preventing final year students who owed school fees from writing the WASSCE.
It, therefore, directed that no student should be sent out of school or prevented from writing the WASSCE and or any examinations for reasons of non-payment of fees or levies.
“Regional Directors should ensure strict compliance of this directive,” the memo added.
