Senator Taylor Vouches For Islamic Girls Education

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, June 23 (LINA) – Bong County Senator Jewel Howard Taylor has stressed the need to increase in the enrollment of female students in Islamic schools in the county.

She said unlike the past when the boys were given priority over girls, it was now time that Islamic educators encourage girls by affording them the chance to matchup with male students.

Senator Taylor spoke Sunday when she served as Guest Speaker at this year’s closing program of the Arabic and Islamic School in Barwor-Quarter in Gbarnga City, Bong County.

The Senator indicated that gone are the days when females took the back seat and were answerable to their male counterparts, noting, “Female students must be given the chance to compete in a free and fair environment.”

Senator Taylor then awarded scholarships to three students of the school and donated L$10,000 each to the first and second dux for academic 2013/2014.
