Some agitated West African Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) candidates at the Tweneboa Kodua Senior High School (SHS) in south Ghana’s Ashanti Region vandalized their school’s properties on the basis that invigilators were being “too strict” during the exams on Monday. Similarly, students at the Bright SHS in the Eastern Region and Ndewura Jakpa Senior High Technical School in the Savannah Region on Thursday, August 13 2020, demonstrated against teachers over alleged “intimidation” by external invigilators during their social studies exam. As a result, the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) has called for the provision of security for teachers serving as invigilators in the ongoing exam. National President for CHASS Alhaji Yacoub Abubakar told local media that the lives of teachers were in danger following a series of attacks by WASSCE candidates on invigilators and supervisors across the country.
