NTAL Official Decries Transfer Of Teachers
By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, April 25 (LINA) - The President of the Bomi County branch of the National Teachers Association of Liberia (NTAL), Isaac Kamara, has described the transfer of 10 teachers in the county as “unprofessional, untimely and dangerous to the education system.”

It can be recalled that the Ministry of Education in March this year transferred the teachers due to manpower shortage at the Gbah, Deajah and Samukah public schools.

In an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Tubmanburg recently, Kamara said he was not against the transfer of the teachers, but the best time to effect the changes would have been at the end of the school year.

He noted that transferring teachers when they are preparing to administer the 5th period tests will affect the performance of both the teachers and students.

Kamara, who was transferred from a school in Tubmanburg to another in Gbah, Klay District, said the decision by the Ministry of Education has brought serious setbacks to the “already messy education system in the country.”

He urged the MOE to treat teachers as professional people who believe in planning and adopt another approach to ensure a successful school year.

“How possible is it for a teacher to move his/her belongings from village to village while instructional activities are going on and when he should be in class?” Kamara asked.
