Michael Owusu Afriyie popularly known as Teacher Kwadwo has been at the centre of social media discussions after a report surfaced that he has been sacked by the Ghana Education Service.
As published by Ghana’s Hub For Pop Culture & Urban Entertainment News – www.nydjlive.com on Saturday, December 18, 2021, Teacher Kwadwo in a post revealed he had been sacked by the Service but described the reasons for his sack as “very funny” although he would not give details of the sack letter for “some PROFESSIONAL reasons.”
However, a new document dated October 27, 2021, and chanced on by Ghana’s Hub For Pop Culture & Urban Entertainment News – www.nydjlive.com lists three (3) ‘very unprofessional, unethical and serious misconduct’ by Teacher Kwadwo that warranted a directive that he stays away from the Ghana Education Service pending a final decision by the GES Council which is yet to be reconstituted.
The document lists the ‘very unprofessional, unethical and serious misconduct’ as follows.
Mr Michael Owusu Afriyie, the P4 teacher of Akrofuom D/A Primary school was absent from school without permission for a tot. of 55 clays in the 2021 academic year.
Mr Michael Owusu Afriyie refused to prepare a lesson plan as a professional teacher and ignored the directive of the District Director to prepare the lesson plan. He further refused to submit Lesson Notes for vetting by his Headteacher.
Mr Michael Owusu Afriyie exhibited the highest level of insubordination towards the District Director and the School improvement Support Officer (SISO) responsible for his school as well as the Headteacher of his school, and that he in some instances refused to respond to queries served him by both the Headteacher and the SISO. He further even refused to respond to a query issued to him by the District Director and in addition, refused to appear before a panel set up by the District Director to investigate his conduct.
The document however took recognition of his contribution to the school saying;
“Management, however, has taken into consideration some of Mr Owusu Afriyie’s positive contribution to the schools in terms of the painting of the school, donation of television sets, computers to the school as well as provision of school uniform to some pupils, and therefore directs that his appointment with the Ghana Education Service (GES) should be terminated forthwith.”
