The headmistress of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Senior High School (KNUST SHS) in Kumasi, Madam Felicia Asamoah Dankwaa has been indicted by the Ghana Education Service (GES).
The interdiction comes after a final year student reportedly died on Tuesday 7th July, 2020 after lack of medical attention when he was sick.
Reports say the school authorities failed to attend to the student because they thought he was showing symptoms of COVID-19.
According to a statement signed by Cassandra Twum Ampofo, Head of Public Relations at the Ghana Education Service, Madam Felicia Asamoah Dankwaa has been directed to step aside for the Regional Director of Education to take over.
The statement added that the GES is investigating the circumstances that led to the death of the student.
