UCC replies dismissed trainees;”We are unperturbed about your vandalism”

It seems the ‘pain’ and ‘agony’of dismissed students from the colleges of Education in the country is of no business to the policy makers.
Teacher trainees were dismissed due to the failure of single papers and their inability to pass the referred papers .A situation that led to students showing their displeasure of the new directives by the institute of education of the University of Cape Coast.
Students protested from Akrokeri College of Education and Mampong Technical College of Education leading to a close down of such colleges to prevent any unforeseen circumstances that may prevail from such colleges.
In a latest development, a publication on starrfmonline indicates that the institute may not be necessarily interested in all the protest that the students may be exhibiting.
Read the extract of  their publication below…..
”The director of the Institute of Education at the University of Cape Coast Prof. Fred Ocansey has stated the institution is unperturbed by pockets of vandalism and social media intimidation being used by students affected by its new policy regulating academic performance in colleges of education in Ghana.

Per the new policy, teacher trainee students who fail a paper after re-sitting an examination is either dismissed or re-enrolled as a first year student.

This new policy has led to the dismissal of hundreds of teacher trainees from the various colleges of education in Ghana. The affected students have expressed displeasure over the directive.

The Mampong Technical College of Education in the Ashanti region has been shut down over fears that the 200 students dismissed were engineering plans to set the institution ablaze.

Prof. Ocansey in a speech delivered on his behalf by Dr. Eric Anane, a faculty member of the Institute of Education of UCC, during the 4th Matriculation ceremony organised by the Methodist College of Education (METHCOE) Akyem Asene-Aboabo, Oda on Saturday, said the new policy has the blessing of the Education Ministry, the council of tertiary education and all other relevant stakeholders of education.

“No amount of social media intimidation or vandalism, though I know you here at METCOE will not do that can save you,” he served notice.

He therefore used the occasion to advise the students to be serious with their books to avert any such unpleasant occurrence.

On his part, Rt. Rev. Kwame Baffour Kyei, Bishop of the Akyem Oda diocese of the Methodist Church and the council chairman of METCOE speaking on behalf of the Chancellor of the school and the presiding bishop of the Methodist Church, Most Rev. Awotwe Pratt assured the students of the continuous support of the Methodist church for the school.

He advised the students to see teaching as a vocation more than a profession so that they can embrace the path they have chosen in life well and to impact positively into the lives of the children they will be teaching after school.

“Students who pass here with the aim of passing through to become teachers and later find other jobs are those who often fail,” he said.”

If this publication should deserve the necessary attention then  i think trainees may have no hope to   defend their plight.  But the future is the way to go……..
