Five final year students of Efutu M/A have been prevented from writing Basic Education Certificate Examinations(BECE).
The headmistress of the school has prevented them from writing the Exam because they are pregnant. The headmistress made it clear that she will never let any student who is pregnant write the exams. Last year, she prevented a final year from writing the exam.
“Just because I faulted, that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t write the exams. I don’t want to stay home. I was to also complete Basic Education with my colleagues,” one pregnant student said on Starr Fm in Accra. The mother of one of the students complained that the kind of treatment their giving to her daughter is unfair and thus, they want to jeopardize the future of her daughter because she’s pregnant.
