      Why GHANASCO Senior Housemaster Was Interdicted While Assistant Headmasters Are Left At Post

      It is intriguing to ask why GHANASCO senior housemaster was interdicted while the assistant headmasters were left at post in the GHANASCO toilet dormitory saga.

      Highlights

      1. The headmaster of Ghana Senior High School and the senior housemaster were interdicted over an allegation that a toilet cubicle was converted to a dormitory for students.

      2. The question is why the senior housemaster, who is lower in the organogram, was interdicted while the assistant headmasters were left at post.

      3. In the case of the headmaster, there is no question about his interdiction, since he is the ultimate leader of the institution.

      Why the senior housemaster was interdicted

      It must be noted that the senior housemaster is the ultimate leader of domestic affairs in the scheme of things at schools. Even though there are assistant headmasters in some schools responsible for domestic affairs, the ultimate lead and duty the senior housemaster is supposed to play is not delegated to the domestic assistant headmaster. In addition, the senior housemaster is supposed to have the best interest of students at heart in the midst of management members. Therefore, any sign that the care that students deserve to receive is not up to the standard would mean the senior housemaster is not representing the student in their best interest.

      Also, among the teaching staff, the senior housemaster is considered their leader. While the headmaster is the head of management and the whole school. Any action that must be taken against the teaching staff must first fall on the senior housemaster who is their immediate leader.

      Finally, considering administrative continuity, interdicting any one assistant headmaster would mean the remaining assistant headmasters must be interdicted as well. Therefore, the senior housemaster would be the best person to sacrifice for the purposes of administrative continuity.

      The toilet dormitory incident

      A video appears online allegedly indicating a portion of a toilet facility is housing some students at the Ghana Senior High School in Tamale. According to Citi Eyewitness news, portions of the video showed dress/ clothes hanging in the said toilet cubicle. Also, “butter”, which is used to fetch water by Muslims for ablution, is found in cubicles together with mattresses. The presence of those materials showed some habitation of the cubicle.
