Over the past few days, there have been pictures of teachers writing examination questions on chalkboards. These images have generated a lot of talk on social media.
The teachers had to write the exam questions on the board because they were following the instructions of the Ghana Education Service not to collect printing fees from the pupils.
Reports suggest that the GES had not paid the money that was supposed to be used for the printing of the examination papers yet so the teachers had to resort to writing the questions on the board.
Most Ghanaians on social media have described the development as an embarrassment to the nation.
In an interview with Francis Abban on Starr FM today, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Education, Vincent Assafuah described the action of the teachers as dramatic and uncalled for.
He admitted that the payment of the money that was needed to print the exam questions had delayed but half of the money was paid yesterday.
