THE District Director of Education for the Atwima Nwabiagya District, Mrs Dinah Appiah, has cautioned heads of junior high schools (JHS) against registering unqualified candidates for the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE).
She said it was illegal to register any candidate outside his or her own school without the proper transfer.
The director gave the warning when she addressed some heads of basic schools in the district at a meeting at Toase.
She further indicated that the registration of forms one and two students in the JHS was an offence and said heads of schools who fell foul of the law would not be spared.
Mrs Appiah commended the school heads for working very hard to raise the standard of education in the district.
She called for effective supervision of teaching and learning by the school heads to further improve the standard of education in the district.
Mrs Appiah charged the head teachers to organise in-service training programmes for their teachers periodically to help update them on the current methodologies of teaching.
She stressed that quality education delivery was crucial in developing the intellectual capacities of schoolchildren at the basic levels.
That, Mrs Appiah stressed, would help the children to grow with it and eventually help them in their academic careers at the highest levels.
Mrs Appiah urged the heads to keep abreast of the details of the new educational reforms and sensitise the general public to the programme through school management committees and parent-teacher associations (PTAs).
