Deputy Director of Ghana Education Service, Dr Kwabena Bempah Tandoh has directed heads of the various Senior High Schools to desist from refusing to admit students who are placed in their schools.

He says such acts are making their work very difficult and putting so much pressure on the students, the ministry and even parents.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, he explained that the variety of the various heads of second cycle institutions should constantly refresh the system to see students who have been placed in their schools.

"You don’t just refuse students who have been placed in your schools when you don’t see them on the list that has been provided," he said.

"The placement is an ongoing process so the Education Service constantly places students in schools, and that until all students are placed the placement exercise will continue, and we expect various heads to take note."

He also appealed to parents and students to accept placements into various schools and stop asking for replacement.

There were chaotic scenes at the Black Star Square in Accra last Monday when hundreds of desperate parents, guardians and students besieged the Accra Solution Centre set up by the GES to handle concerns relating to the placement of prospective students in SHSs and TVIs.

In the process, seven people, including four female students, a pregnant woman and two male students, collapsed and were rushed to the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, where they were treated and discharged.

According to sources, the incident happened when the parents and the students surged forward in a frantic effort to reach officials at the centre.

The chaotic situation compelled the officials to call for police reinforcement to instil law and order at the venue.

As a result of the confusion, officials of the exercise suspended the process around 12 noon on Tuesday and asked the parents and their children to go home, with the assurance that the exercise would resume the following day.

At a point, armed policemen were placed at the entrance to the centre to prevent the crowd from gaining access to the centre.
