Normal Academic Activities Resume At KRTTI

By Richard Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, May 6 (LINA) - The Director of the Kakata Rural Teachers Training Institute (KRTTI) says following weeks of closure, normal academic activities have resumed at the Institute.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency Monday, Director Precious Brownell- Dennis said the school started normal academic activities since the 21st of April following series of discussions with staff, students and authorities of the Ministry of Education.

Madam Dennis said most of what was demanded by the teachers and staff is still being discussed, but noted that the school needed to remain open and running while further discussions were being held.

It can be recalled that in early March, staff and trainees of the KRTTI called for the removal of Director Brownell- Dennis, something that later led to the closure of the school by government.

The director said over 95 percent of the trainees returned and re-commenced their teaching practice at various schools in Margibi County.

She disclosed that there are a total of 251 students currently undergoing training at the KRTTI, including 34 females and 217 males.

Meanwhile, the KRTTI Director has expressed disappointment over the wide gap between male and female enrollment at the school, but indicated that she was going to institute measures to augment female enrollment.

She said the school training calendar, which should have ended by early June, will be extended to July 12 to compensate for time lost during the closure.   

She also vowed to maintain a cordial working relationship with her staff, adding, “a leader in a democratic society must be willing to listen to the people they lead to forge a better working environment.”
