The Oti Regional Directorate of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has warned proprietors and headmasters of private schools within the region over the violation of GES policy on admission and registration of final year students.

The directorate, in a letter signed by the Ag. Oti Regional Director, Nana Kugbeadzor-Bakateyi II, indicated that some heads/proprietors of private schools are in the practice of condoning with some public school teachers to poach second and third year students from public schools, get them enrolled and registered for BECE/WASSCE in their respective schools.

According to the directorate, their findings indicate that, such young graduates who pass with very strong aggregates are not able to cope with tertiary work and hence withdrawn by the school authorities or victims themselves withdraw for inability to cope with academic work.
