Education Ministry Against Sub-standard School Structures

By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, May 21 (LINA)  - Deputy Education Minister for Instruction, Mrs. Hawah Goll-Kotchi, is admonishing private schools to make considerable investment in their school infrastructure.

She warned against construction of sub-standard structures that are becoming prevalent at many private schools in the country.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Mrs. Kotchi made the statement recently at a program marking the 10th Gala Anniversary of the O’nance International Christian School located in the Monrovia suburb of Paynesville.

Mrs. Kotchi called on those wanting to build a school to visit the Education Ministry to get a copy of the design brochure for schools in the country.

“The Ministry of Education Ministry will not accept or allow anyone to build any school with any design other than our design. Please cooperate or face the full wrath of the ministry,” she warned.

She said the design includes laboratory, library and childhood center, stressing that the Government of Liberia is pressing more than ever before to devote more resources in the national budget to education.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Kotchi is asking private schools to follow closely the school calendar and national curriculum, as well as policies of the Education Ministry, which include employment of qualified teaching staff and administrators.

She disclosed that the Education Ministry is now working closely with the Civil Service Agency to vet and verify public school teachers to ensure that people with formal training in education are employed to teach in all public schools.

“We expect all private and Mission schools to do the same,” she added.
