Audio: GNECC worried over examination malpractice

The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC), Western North Regional branch, has voiced deep concern over the escalating cases of examination malpractice among Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) candidates in Ghana.

The organization, dedicated to promoting quality education for all, expressed disappointment during their annual meeting held in Sefwi Wiawso.

Emmanuel Adowa, the Regional Chairman of GNECC, conveyed the organization’s frustration in an interview with UNIIKNews. Adowa emphasized the need for stringent measures to address the issue and called for decisive action against those found guilty of examination malpractice.

“It is disheartening to witness our future leaders resorting to cheating during examinations. The integrity of the education system is at stake, and it is imperative that swift and strict measures be implemented to curb this worrying trend,” remarked Adowa.

GNECC’s main goal is to influence policies and practices of various institutions, including governments and intergovernmental bodies, to ensure quality education.

Emmanuel Adowa stressed that the coalition is committed to working with civil society organizations and communities to bring about positive change in attitudes towards education.

Adowa also expressed his apprehension regarding the recently introduced curriculum, describing it as an “empty curriculum” that falls short of the necessary standards for effective teaching.

He called on education stakeholders to address the curriculum’s shortcomings and work towards its improvement to enhance the overall quality of education in the country.

“The new curriculum must be robust and comprehensive to meet the needs of our students. We cannot compromise on the quality of education, and it is crucial that we address these issues promptly to secure a better future for our children,” Adowa stated.
