NTC MUST APPLY ETHICAL STANDARDS. SERIOUS EXAMINATION BODY DO NOT PUBLISH EXAM SCRIPTS – Anthony Cobbinah, Dir. Guidance and Counselling, EAI.
“A mother will not throw away the baby with the baby bath to the gutters just because she thinks he pooped”
It is of a truth, a mother in the right state of mind and not externally motivated would sort after the best interest of her wards to become nothing less than being relevant for himself and the society at large.
Openly, the NTC and its leadership have demonstrated that it is not in control of its affairs and lacks the technical requirements and common sense for operating in such positions.
The recent brouhaha surrounding the 84% mass failure of trained teachers who undertook the NTC’s licensure exams has revealed the weaknesses and unprofessionalism meted out by the leadership of the NTC, especially, Mr. Addai-Poku, the registrar for NTC who should have known better.
EDUCATE AFRICA INSTITUTE (EAI), in this sense, condemns NTC for such acts and cries out NTC’s;
- unprofessional conduct by jumping from one media house to the other, denting the image of these poorly trained teachers whose only fault was to act responsibly by sitting for the exams organized by the same National Teaching Council (NTC).
- Leaking and publishing scripts of some supposed candidates who sat for the exams and also disrespecting the laws of the country governing Data Protection.
- Educate Africa Institute (EAI) believes that all colleges and universities and, for that matter, all lecturers and facilitators should rather bow their heads in shame, assuming the NTC’s stance was true. That is, garbage in garbage out (GIGO). What they deposited into these trained teachers is what they have reproduced.
- Why didn’t they leak and publish those who answered correctly?
Nonetheless, we also dare to ask NTC if they were motivated by other factors such as;
- IMF conditionalities, possibly?
- Unabsorbing of these trained teachers into the GES and other private educational institutions, hence the deliberate mass failure?
Educate Africa Institute (EAI) foresee a loom, henceforth, should we continue in this tangent of selfishness, ignorance, and carelessness, the future of Ghana’s Education would look even more uglier though, Basic and Secondary Education is already in the mud. Now, its quality, image, and ranking both on the continent and worldwide would be ripped off totally.
