MONROVIA, Jan 7 (LINA) - Majority of schools in Liberia are government-owned, with private schools accounting for just over 25 percent of all academic institutions in Liberia, according to a Ministry of Education report.

The report revealed that of the 2,849 school units captured in its annual school census in 2013, majority are based in Nimba, Montserrado, Bong and Lofa counties, proportionate to the populations of these counties.

It also disclosed that majority of schools in Liberia operate early childhood education  and primary level sections, with only 63 schools not operating either of these sections.

The report pointed out that in comparison, only 776 schools deliver secondary instruction, and it is worth noting, that for the purpose of 2013 year annual census effort, early childhood education was recorded only in schools which also offer primary and secondary education.

The report stressed that for planning purposes, a school represents a building or an entity as opposed to the level of schooling under operation.
