 Veteran Journalist, Kwesi Pratt Junior, reacting to the deboardinisation of seven female students from the Ejisuman Senior High School (SHS), says it was a wrong decision.

Speaking on Accra-based Peace FM, monitored by Adomonline, Mr Pratt suggested an internal discipline and a counselling session for the girls would have been a better option.

He argued the family settings of some of these girls may not be conducive for the necessary transformation the girls may need.


The seven girls, who are all final year students of the school, were captured in a video recorded with a mobile phone which is prohibited in basic and SHSs to “intentionally upload a video on social media where unprintable words that border on sex were spewed out.”

The deboardinization of the girls, which took effect from February 6, 2020, was announced in a letter to the Ashanti Regional Director of Education.
