Teacher Serwaah Mankosa has been trending throughout the week for feeding her class one pupil with hot meals each day from her pocket.
The young lady who teaches at Aninkrom D/A Primary one in Adankwame District in the Ashanti Region had posted pictures of her pupils to solicit support from the public to keep the children fed.
Following her kind-hearted display, Abenah was lauded by Ghanaians for her benevolence with BBC Pidgin also giving her mileage.
In a new development, the Ghana Education Service(GES) is reportedly considering sanctioning the young lady for misconduct, and this has enraged many on social media.
The GES is reportedly accusing the teacher of going against GES rules to take pictures of the kids and sharing them on social media as well as using the kids to solicit money for personal gain.
Serwaah Mankosa has, however, come under intense scrutiny from some authorities in her school and the district for feeding her pupils using her little resources and donations from loved ones, she said.
”I just don’t know any GES rules that are against taking pictures of children, so we can’t reach out to the less privileged in the society in peace.
”Can the community turn against me that they don’t like how I treat my children under the influence of any power? Ghana is sweet. Daddy said I’m stronger than this. The final verdict at my district education office. I love my country. I have just lost appetite. So will Ghana ever develop?”
But her friends are not backing down and have thrown their support behind her, indicating that they’d not allow the Ghana Education Service (GES) to intimidate her.
In a long-worded post in support of his colleague teacher, Michael Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as Teacher Kwadwo expressed disappointment at the GES, claiming the Service is attempting to intimidate Serwaah Mankosa.
