Students of the Akropong School for the Blind have threatened to set the school ablaze if the headmistress is not removed by Monday, May 17, 2021.
The students on Friday morning embarked on a demonstration.
They accused the headmistress Mahela Narh of mismanagement, corruption, and unfair treatment of teachers.
They also cited the Headmistress of misappropriation of funds and selling of foods donated to the school by philanthropists.
The students further accused the Headmistress of verbally abusing students over their disability.
A joint petition by the Students Representative Council(SRC) and Progressive Old Students Association of Akropong School for the Blind presented to the Ghana Education Service, called on all stakeholders, the office of the President, Ministry of Education, the Ghana Education Service, and CHRAJ for the headmistress Madam Mahela Narh’s immediate interdiction for proper investigation to be conducted.
“After the investigation, she should be re-assigned because her continuous stay in the school will not bring peace and academic progress”.
They warned if the headmistress is not removed, they will set the school ablaze no matter the consequences.
They also claimed that the laptops, iPads, and other gadgets donated to the students have not been distributed.
