Five pregnant pupils have kicked against the decision of Efutu M/A Basic school, preventing them from sitting for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in Ghana.
The pupils whose names were not given because they are minors, are appealing to the GES and leaders of Central region in Country and the general to come to their aid.
One of the victims complained that “The headmistress made us aware that she will not allow any pregnant student to write final exams. But I faulted and should not be prevented to write my final exams.
“Last year she prevented a final year student from writing because she was pregnant, I don’t want to stay home I want to write the exams and finish up this year with my colleagues”, one of the pupils said.
Starr News said the mother of one of the girls, described the measure as unfair for the headmistress to jeopardize the future of her child because she is pregnant.
The family believes that the headmistress is not going by the Ghana Education Service regulation that allows pregnant students to write the exams.
