The Vice President of National Association of Graduate Teachers, Angel Kabornu, has called on the Ghana Education Service (GES) to reconsider its decision to dismiss and interdict some SHS headteachers.

Contributing to a radio discussion, Angel Carbonu appealed to the GES to forgive all the sanctioned heads of schools.

“I appeal to the GES for the Heads of the schools who have been sanctioned to be reinstated” He begged News
