“Lately, some teachers in Ghanaian schools are in the habit of recording interactions between their students and posting them on social media for likes and engagements.,” she said.
She emphasizes “I don’t have a problem if such videos highlight the challenges these school kids face in getting an education and getting help for them, however, these videos mock these kids who struggle to express themselves in English or other areas.
In a series of tweets, Sarwa Amihere called on the GES to take steps to stop the practice saying it would go a long way to affect students’ confidence.
“I appeal to Ministry of Education and GES to end this practice of some teachers as it is not right and destroys the confidence of children.,” she said.
“The digital footprints such videos leave go a long way to hurt some of these children and we must come together with a common voice to end this and protect our children.,” she concluded.
GES is yet to respond to Sarva’s tweets below.
