Bong Primary Schools Ranked Third in Liberia

By Ballah Kollie

GBARNGA, Jan 17 (LINA) - Primary schools in Bong County have been ranked third to Montserrado and Nimba counties as schools with the highest number of teachers, according to a Ministry of Education Annual School Census report.

The report says 10.28 percent of all primary schools in Liberia are found in Bong County.

It also indicates that male teachers account for 87.7 percent or 1,337, compared to their female counterparts who make up 12.3 percent or 188 of the 1,525 primary school teachers in Bong County.

According to the report, though ranked third, Bong County has only 10.9 percent of the country’s trained primary school teachers.

It puts primary school student-teacher ratio in the county at 23.4 percent or 29,897 students to 1,280 teachers in all public schools operating in the county.

The report also places Bong County in the category of counties like Lofa, Grand Kru and River Gee with the lowest student-textbook ratio compared to Montserrado, Margibi and Grand Bassa Counties, which have relatively high student-textbook ratio.

According to the Ministry of Education Annual School Census, 99.3 percent or 281 of 283 primary schools operating in the Bong County have the prescribed curriculum of the Ministry of Education.

The MOE report also indicates that government owns and operates more schools than any other institution in the county, a situation, the report says, is not unique to Bong County alone.
