School proprietors, female students in sexual relationship – MCE say
He said reports reaching him indicated that some proprietors in the Municipality had been having affairs with their female students and warned those heads to stop the practice before the law caught up with them.
Mr Tetteh made this known when he addressed the graduation day of Kwagyir Aggrey Academy at Agona Swedru on Friday.
The theme for the function was, “Inspiring Learning, the Role of the Parent.”
He said such bad behaviour did not augur well for the private-public partnership in education the Government had been advocating.
As heads of educational institutions molding children’s character for the nation, they were expected to exhibit good character for the children to emulate, he said.
The MCE therefore urged parents to expose proprietors who indulged in such disgraceful acts to avoid destroying future of their children.
He indicated that education was the best property parents could bequeath to their children and which nobody could take away from them.
The MCE cautioned parents to regulate the viewing of television set at home, adding that watching television all the time could disturb the children’s studies.
He appealed to the parents to visit their children’s school regularly to enable them to interact with the teachers to known the academic performance of their wards.
Mrs Susan Aggrey, Proprietress of the School, appealed to the Government to supply textbooks and exercise books to the children to ease the financial burden on the parents.
She also appealed to the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Services (GES) to post some of the teacher trainees on internship to private schools to enhance the quality teaching and learning.
Mrs Aggrey said the school started in 2006 with four kids, and now had a student population of 370.
