Ghanaian Final year students of Zabzugu Senior High School in the Zabzugu District, attacked their teachers with stones and weapons for stopping them from cheating during their final year examination.
Enraged students vandalised school properties, broke doors, television sets, and windows. They said it was their right to copy or send texts books into the examination hall according to Adomonline.
A student who wishes to remain anonymous stated, “Even though they did not have any pact with their teachers to allow them to cheat, they were reliably informed that teachers from other schools aid their students by allowing them to copy.”
A scared teacher said the only reason he was only alive because he didn’t take refuge in his house because the students went to his house with stones.
He said, “The students felt they had a right to send their notebooks and textbooks to the examination hall, a right they the teachers are yet to come across in any of the examination regulations.
“As a result, the students mobilized themselves and stormed the school, vandalizing properties and threatening to kill any teacher they came across.”
The teachers have therefore vowed not to supervise or invigilate the rest of the exams unless heavy security was provided.
But the District Chief Executive of Zabzugu Hon. Iddi Ahmed is has called on authorities to ensure that the problem between the students and the teachers is resolved.
