Crackdown on Truancy: Adamaoua Region Enforces Ban on Loitering Students

Crackdown on Truancy: Adamaoua Region Enforces Ban on Loitering Students

Paru le lundi, 15 janvier 2024 17:14

A ban on students loitering outside school premises during regular lesson hours has been enforced in the Djerem department of the Adamaoua region since January 10, according to an order signed by senior divisional officer Roger Saffo. The order states that any student found violating this rule will be taken into custody by law enforcement until a parent or school official intervenes. Saffo cites “imperatives of safety and public order” as the reason for this measure.

This is not an isolated incident. In February 2023,  Richard Marcel Tam Likeng, Divisional Officer for Penka Michel Sub Division in the West region mobilized law enforcement to apprehend loitering students, citing an “upsurge in indiscipline” as the reason. Similarly, in October 2022, Chief Superintendent of Police Germain Djakedi, Commissioner of Public Security in Yagoua (Far North), reactivated efforts to combat truancy to curb “massive failures in end-of-year exams.” 

These measures are part of a broader campaign against truancy, which is often associated with academic failure and school dropout rates.
