The Ghana Education Service(GES) has warned Metro/Municipal/District Directors of Education against submitting names of persons who do not qualify for the One Teacher Per Laptop project underway in the Ashanti region.
According to the GES, non-teaching staff and retired or separated staff have been smuggled into the list that should be strictly limited to JHS teachers.
A statement issued by the Regional Education Office in the Ashanti Region observed that â€œindications are that in some instances some strange names have been added with fake staff IDs.
The statement signed by the Regional Director of Education, Mary Owusu Afriyie thus cautioned: â€œDistrict Directors of Education and Headteachers are reminded that such conduct constitutes fraud.
â€œAll District Directors of Education are therefore requested to validate the list which have been sent and submit an updated list by close of work on Tuesday, 31st August, 2021 through the email address (dirreduashgmail.com) with the attached template.â€
The statement further added that after the deadline, District Directors of Education will be responsible for any such false data submitted.
