MONROVIA, Jan 7 (LINA) - The Liberian Government pays more than 80 percent of teachers in Gbarpolu, Grand Gedeh, Grand Kru and Rivercess counties, and the Monrovia Consolidated School System, according to an Education Ministry report.

The report, however, indicated that in the country as a whole, about 60 percent of teachers get their salaries from government.

The report named the counties where government pays the lowest percentage of teachers’ salaries as Montserrado, 27.7 percent, Margibi 44 percent, Grand Bassa 44.7 percent and Bomi 56.4 percent.

The report further pointed out that private institutions are the most common source of teachers’ salaries in these counties, noting that in Montserrado County more than 50 percent of teachers get their salaries from private institutions.

The report also disclosed that almost 10 percent of teachers in Grand Bassa, Lofa and Bomi Counties receive their salaries from households.

It indicated that nationally, 10.1 percent of primary school teachers in Liberia are volunteers and that in seven counties over 10 percent of primary school teachers are volunteers.

The report did not, however, name the counties.
