It emerged yesterday December 18, 2021, that the Ghana Education Service(GES) has terminated the appointment of Micheal Owusu Afriyie popularly known as Teacher Kwadwo.
Although the Celebrity Teacher made the disclosure on social media, he failed to reveal the contents of his dismissal letter for professional reasons but GhanaXtra.Com has intercepted the letter.
The letter dated October 27, 2021, was signed by Deputy Director-General, Mr. Anthony Boateng, and addressed to the Ashanti Regional Director of the Ghana Education Service.
The letter is captioned: “Re-report of allegations of professional misconduct against Mr. Micheal Owusu Afriyie of Akrofuom D/A Primary School in the Akrofuom District of the Ashanti Region”.
Per the contents of the letter, Teacher Kwadwo was found guilty of all three charges that were leveled against him by the Ghana Education Service.
He was found guilty of refusing to prepare lesson notes and submitting same for vetting, absenting himself from school for a period of 55 days without permission, and exhibiting a high level of insubordination towards the District Director of Education and the School Improvement Support Officer(SISO) for his school.
According to management, these conducts are serious, unprofessional, and unethical and therefore rejected the earlier recommendation of the District Education Committee that he should be re-assigned to a different school.
Meanwhile, since his dismissal requires the endorsement of the Ghana Education Council, which is yet to be re-constituted, he has been ordered to stay away from GES until a final determination by the council at the appropriate time.
