For the mere fact that not all Ghanaian teachers attended colleges of education, it will be unfair to assume that this phenomenon is taught to them as part of the training.
However, if the seeming consensus on social media is anything to go by, some interesting expressions have been found to run through all primary and high schools across the country.
And guess who the key perpetrators are? Teachers!
If I were in primary school, just the assumption of this conclusion alone could have earned me the much dreaded ‘you’re becoming unbecoming’ tag.
