A total of 460 First Year Teacher Trainees in 46 colleges of Education in the country have been dismissed.
Their dismissal followed poor academic records from the University of Cape Coast which is the affiliating University of the colleges.
According to a report, some of the affected students in Assin South in the Central region have committed suicide by drinking poison, while another student at the Koforidua Asokore SDA College of Education also attempted suicide.
The affected students have so far accused the National Conference of Principals of Teacher Training Colleges (PRINCOF) and Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) for being indolent about their plight gave that the First Year of their course was riddled with challenges.
