Management has studied and reviewed the report of the Akrofuom District Disciplinary Committee on allegations of professlonal misconduct against Mr. Michael Owusu Afriyie of Akrofuom D/A Primary School, with staff number 1247997.

The report established that:

1. Mr. Michael Owusu Afriyie, the P4 teacher of Akrofuom D/A Primary school was absent from school without permission for a total of 55 days in the 2021 academic year.

2. Mr. Michael Owusu Afiyie refused to prepare lesson plan as a professional
teacher and ignored directive of the District Director to prepare the lesson plan. He further refused to submit Lesson Notes for vetting by his Headteacher.

3. 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.

Management views these conducts serious enough and very unprofessional and unethical. Management therefore does not accept the recommendation of the Committee that Mr. Michael Owusu Afriyie should be re-assigned since the recommended sanctions does not commensurate with the established misconduct, since such serious non professional and unethical conduct merit summery dismissal.

Management, however, has taken into consideration some of Mr. Owusu Afryie’s
positive contribution to the schools in terms of painting of the school, donation of television sets, computers to the school as well as provision of school uniforms to some pupils, and therefore directs that his appointment with the Ghana Education Service (GES) should be terminated forthwith.

Since termination of appointment requires the endorsement of the GES Council, which currently is not re-constituted, it is directed that Mr. Michael Owusu Afriyie should stay away from the GES until a final decision by the GES Council, when re-constituted.

MR TIMOTHY K-AYOMBIL
Management accepts the recommendation of the Committee that Mr. Ayombil should be re-assigned to a classroom to teach since it is established that he is incompetent to head a school.

MR. EDWARD YAMOAH
Management is of the view that Mr. Yamoah should also be re-assigned from his current role as a SISO and be re-posted as a classroom teacher in another district.
