Final year students of the Tweneboa Kodua Senior High School (SHS) at Kumawu in the Ashanti Region yesterday (Monday August 3,2020) threatened to boycott the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

This was after the students accused their school authorities of being ‘too strict’ during the supervision of their first paper.

While demanding that the headmaster leaves the examination hall, they also alleged that Mr. Francis Awuah has been manhandling some students and teachers during the examination.

It took the intervention of political and traditional authorities to restore calm and get the students to rescind their decision.

The confusion also caused some delay in their writing of the second part of the paper.

Some students after the first part of the Integrated Science paper, marched to the office of the District Chief Executive, Samuel Addai Agyekum to report their head teacher’s misbehavior.

According to them, the head teacher had slapped a teacher and also abused other students who were sitting for the examination.

Others who remained on campus refused to take food served at the dining hall. They also toppled furniture and food served in protest against their head teacher.

The Police were subsequently brought in to restore calm and order.

Meanwhile, Director General of the Ghana Education Service, Prof. Opoku Amankwah has condemned the behavior of the students.

He said they should have used due process to address their grievances and not violence.
