MONROVIA Dec 18 (LINA) - The Ministry of Education has revealed an increase in primary public school teachers for the academic year 2012- 2013, moving from 9,655 to 10,852.

 A report from the ministry said Margibi and Montserrado counties recorded the highest number of teacher increase in the primary public school.

In 2012, Margibi County had 90 teachers but the number increased to 440 in 2013, while Montserrado County’s 357 teachers in 2012 rose to 925 in 2013, the report indicated.

It said despite the overall increase of teachers in Liberia, nine counties experienced decrease in the number of teachers in primary public school between 2012 and 2013, with the largest drop in teachers recorded in Lofa County.

The report pointed out that nationally, 88 percent of the primary public teachers are males and 12 percent females.

The report stated that male teachers make up a disproportionately larger percentage of the public primary school teaching force in Liberia.
