The Informed Teachers Network (ITN) has alleged that the WASSCE and BECE conducted by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) have lost their value following a report released by the Africa Education Watch dubbed, ‘THE 2020 WASSCE REPORT’.
The network threw its support to the released report as it blamed all the educational stakeholders for the rate at which the educational system had been compromised. Read the full post below;
WASSCE AND BECE HAVE BECOME COMMUNITY PROJECT WORK.
“Just observe critically the upcoming one. Parents, teachers, proprietors, headteachers, family members, police, invigilators, etc. Everyone is in one way or the other on standby to supply the candidates with appor or allow them to engage in examination malpractice. The process has already begun.
I won’t say the president is not aware of this. Parents have bought their children smartphones for this same purpose. Headmasters, parents, and teachers are extorting money from the candidates in anticipation to buy the papers or bribe the police and invigilators in other to perpetuate the planned malpractices. The candidates have put all their hopes in the appor not what they have learned.
How do you feel as a parent, head, teacher, or proprietor, discussing this corrupt plan with your students? Are you not ashamed of yourself? Do you know how they see or think about you when they grow?
I remembered when I was writing my BECE one of our teachers came to drop a piece of paper through the window and was caught and handcuffed away. I was just looking at him in shame while they dragged him by the ass. Very embarrassing. Why do you put your job and integrity on the line for stupidity? So many years now but I can still remember that scene. I always see him as a corrupt and irresponsible adult. That’s not what he was supposed to be teaching us.
The next time you go to the hospital and they have you wrong injection, blame yourself. When those who are supposed to handle your documents commit too many errors, know that you are enjoying the fruits of your labour. The next time you hear of a bribery scandal about a politician, know that, that’s a reflection of your work.
Be a responsible adult. Teach the children the right thing. Be an example. If they fail, they won’t die. They would learn from their mistakes and become a better version of themselves. Just be there for them to encourage and guide them.
The worst of it is that, after you have toiled to teach your children, someone will come and supply them with wrong answers in the hall and they would also copy without verifying and end up failing. If you asked them why they fail, they can’t explain.
