GTHS Bamenda students boo at indecently dressed teacher

Lower sixth form students of government Technical High School Bamenda, popularly known as CANADA, booed and jeered at a sexily dressed female teacher recently. The female francophone teacher whose names the Vanguard withholds is said to have been dressed in tight and funny pair of trousers and the top ending a little above her navel. Amazed by this feat of indecency which did not reflect a person of her social standing, the students reportedly started booing at her. Offended by what she considered unruliness of the students, she reportedly suspended the lesson and moved to the Discipline Master and reported the students.

The Discipline Master in reaction gave a mass punishment to the entire lower sixth students. When the school's principal, Mr Tangie Joseph learnt of it, he reportedly questioned why a teacher had to dress in such an irresponsible manner. He cancelled the punishment, a student who pleaded anonymity hinted the Vanguard. The student expressed frustration over the way some female teachers of their school dress. The source averred that sexy dressing of some of the female teachers does not only make fun but attracts some of the male teachers who can not control their erotic emotions. This student wondered if that does not contradict the ethics of the profession as "I know teachers to be well-cultured class of people" .He lamented that such teachers are a disgrace to the corps.

This brings to mind the criteria inherent in the admission of teachers into ENS and the Teacher training colleges. He questioned if responsible dressing is not one of the code of ethics governing the corps. He opined that such sexy dressing by female teachers breeds sexual relationship amongst teachers another abuse of the code of ethics. Apart from unorthodox female dressing, most young and unmarried teachers dress exactly like students and rascals.

Some dress in tight fitting jeans trousers and what is popularly known in French as "Pantalon trumpet" and go to class. One begins to question the type of education they are giving the students. The moral decadence alarming in today's society is blamed on teachers, owing to the fact that they are builders of the society. Apart from poor dressing, most teachers-students relationship is questionable. Some of them go to bed with the students they teach. Some years back a school Principal impregnated more than five school girls in one of the secondary schools in Oku. He escaped overnight and the Government as if to condone his acted appointed him Vice Principal a few years.

The Vanguard gathered that the Director of ENS Bambili has started stressing on dress a code. Female students are not allowed to put on trousers, mini skirt or any for of sexy dressing in school while boys' dressing is equally strictly under control.

Our system seems to be suffering many negative effects of francophonisation. Poor dressing is one of them. Most Francophones are generally noted for casual dressing in Cameroon. Some, today, stuff their breast wears with foam to give a semblance of succulent breasts while they are already flabby, only in a bid to attract men. This is sexual harassment. It is so shameful that even house wives do that. This accounts for the alarming rate of adultery and widespread of STDS in today's society.
