African Foundation for Educational Development (AFFED) is calling on appropriate authorities to Penalize any invigilator who engages in acts of examination malpractices in the ongoing 2021 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

In a statement, the Executive Director of African Foundation for Educational Development Ernest Kwame Adade said, they have followed with keen interest the ongoing Basic Education Certificate Examination and the unwelcoming acts of teachers and invigilators that have emanated from some  centres.

According to him, as a Civil Society Organisation that is interested in improving educational standards in Ghana and Africa by extension, it is imperative to make the facts clear that the purpose of BECE is not to select students who have passed from those who have failed.

He explained that, BECE is a means to test the strength and weaknesses of the students to help make an informed decision about life.

African Foundation for Educational Development (AFFED) is therefore disappointed in the invigilators and teachers who have taken up the responsibility of taking money to assist candidates by every means possible during the Examination.

They described such practice as unprofessional, uncalled for and  undermines the integrity of the teaching profession.

“It is on this note that  AFFED, calls on the Ministry of Education, Ghana Education Service and West Africa Examination Council to put measures in place to apprehend all teachers and or invigilators who are found culpable and have them face the full rigours of the law.
Such persons who champion examination malpractice must be severely penalised to save the quality of  Ghana’s examination system.”

“The  war against examination malpractice demands a collective effort etched in commitment.” He explained.
