Public schools within the Ledzorkuku Krowor Municipal Assembly have all been shut down temporarily to make way for police investigations after some students reportedly assaulted a teacher.
According to some students of the affected schools they were asked to return home when they reported yesterday and today by officials.
This comes after a Junior High School student ganged up with his friends to assault a teacher who punished him for not submitting an assignment resulting in the teacher getting injured in the eye.
A teacher (name withheld) affirmed this to ModernGhana News.
“This happened on Monday so the police have ordered the closure of schools within the area to make way for investigations,” she stated.
