SHS is breeding ground for corruption Dean of Cape Coast University

The Dean of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Cape Coast, Professor Dora Francisca Edubuandoh, is asking the entire nation to pay serious attention to the country’s Senior High Schools if the country wants to make a headway in its fights against corruption and other “nation-wrecking activities”.

Speaking at the 25th anniversary celebration of the Oguaa Senior High Technical School in Cape Coast, Prof. Dora Edubuandoh warned that the country will keep on breeding corrupt working force which will consequentially destroy the country if the right things are relegated to the background in the education of students in the country.

“We have had the unpleasant duty of speaking about examination malpractices, about cheating in all spheres of our lives and about corruption in our moral fibre.

“I have said it elsewhere and I will say it again that these negative attitudes to life are cultivated at the Senior High School level. If students do not avail themselves for quality education for our total development and choose rather to cut corners to our kind of success, we will end up populating our nation with human resources that will come back to haunt us,” she said.

She called for a stakeholder support to reverse the phenomenon that is fast destroying the fabric of society.

“In the midst of sexual immorality, religious intolerance, violence and the get-rich-quick mentality plaguing our societies, our classrooms should be safe and secure for our youth to get the knowledge and skills they need for the job marketplace in the 21st century.

“If stakeholders fail to make their responsibility to monitor the classroom, can have another twenty-five years to make it fifty for our golden jubilee, but we would have polluted our society with corrupt minds that do not contribute to the development of the nation or its people,” she adds.

Headmistress of the School, Anastasia Okyere thanked government for supporting the school with numerous infrastructural supports and appealed for abandoned projects to be re-awarded to create space for the increasing population of the school.

Outgoing Central Regional minister, Aquinas Tawiah Quansah called on Parents not to shirk their responsibilities in the development of their children but contribute immensely to augment the strides government keeps making in the educational sector.
