Bomi Counts 346 Public Schools

By David Pamas Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, Jan 21(LINA) - The County Education Officer of Bomi County, J. Seo Davis, has disclosed that there are 346 public schools in the county.

Mr. Davis said the county has five Senior High Schools, while the rest are Junior, Elementary and Pre-schools in the four districts of the county.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency Monday, the Bomi County CEO, however, said there is a general shortage of qualified teachers in the Bomi County School System.

He also regretted that of the 300 teachers in the county only 246 are on government payroll.

Mr. Davis further said some schools in the county lacked chairs, and that this is making it difficult for the students to learn effectively.

He also said only 56 schools benefitted from textbooks provided by the Ministry of Education for Junior, Elementary and Pre-schools students last year.

Mr. Davis, however, admitted that he cannot give the number of private schools in the county due to lack of transportation to visit the four educational districts.

He emphasized that the lack of transportation is the most serious challenge the Bomi County School System is confronted with, saying this has prevented his office from visiting and monitoring schools in the county.
