The President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Mr Eric Agbe Carbonu says too much freedom is the cause of indiscipline in our schools.
He also stated that the student violated the rules and regulations of Ghana Education Service (GES) by possessing a phone in school.
Mr Carbonu condemned the act of the student. He says whether or not the integrated Science exams were in their favour, what they had to do was to concentrate and learn for the coming exams instead of taking to social media.
“You are a student with your future ahead of you, anything posted on social media can be retrieved even in ten to twenty (10-20) years. It could be that you may be looking for a job around that time and these videos can be played to you. It looks like our children don’t even know the implications of putting themselves on social media,” he added.
According to him; disciplined has gone down in schools because of the supposed “traumatisation” of students when they are punished.
He added there should be an appropriate punishment for offences committed by students. These he said would teach them a lesson and also deter other students from engaging in that offence for the good of the town and the school.
He concluded that punishing the student is for their own good and the society.
