Ghana Education Service Transfers Four Interdicted Headteachers Accused of Charging Unauthorized Fees

In response to allegations of charging unauthorized fees, the Ghana Education Service (GES) has transferred four out of eight interdicted Senior High School headteachers in the Ashanti Region.
The interdictions, which took place in December 2023, stemmed from accusations of levying unapproved fees on students, including house dues, book charges, calculators, admission process fees, printing fees for slips, files, and hymn books.
According to Sulemana Yeboah, the Ashanti Regional president of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS), the GES made the decision after conducting investigations into the allegations.
As a result, four headteachers were transferred to different schools, while four others were reassigned within their former schools.
Specifically, the headteacher of Kumasi Girls has been transferred to Ntonsu SDA Girls, the headteacher of SDA Girls is now at Nkawie, and the headteacher of Nkawie SDA Girls has been moved to Nkroful Agric.
Additionally, there were direct swaps, with the headteacher of Manso Adubia SHS moving to Tweapease Senior High School, and the headteacher of Tweapease Senior High School moving to Manso Adubia SHS. Furthermore, a headteacher was moved from KSTS to Bosome Freho Senior High School to replace the retiring headteacher.
CHASS had previously criticized the GES for its handling of the interdicted headteachers, noting that many of them had not received official letters regarding their indictment despite widespread media reports.
