I entreat Ministry of Education and GES to end this practice by some teachers – Serwaa Amihere

Serwaa Amihere, a broadcast journalist and news host from Ghana, has commented on the practise of Ghanaian teachers videotaping their students and sharing the clips on social media.

In recent times, there have been series of videos of pupils recorded by some teachers and posted online to make mockery of them as a result of interactions between them and  teachers.

The media celebrity denounced the behaviour on Twitter and requested the Ghana Education Service (GES) and Ministry of Education (MoE) to assist in putting an end to the practise because it is shattering students’ confidence.

Her tweet read, “Recently, there is a practice where some teachers in schools in Ghana, record an interaction between their pupils and put it on social media for likes and engagements. If such videos were highlighting the challenges these school children go through to access education and seek help for them, I wouldn’t have a problem. However, these videos make mockery of these kids who either struggle to express themselves in English or other areas. I entreat the Ministry of Education and GES to end this practice by some teachers because it is not right and can destroy the confidence of the kids. The digital footprints such videos will leave will go a long way to hurt some of these kids and we need to come together with a common voice to end this. Let us protect our kids!”
