Official Wants Second High School In Bain Garr District

By Wellington Patrick, Nimba County Correspondent

SANNIQUELLIE, Jan 22 (LINA) –An official of the Education Ministry in Bain Garr Education District in Nimba County has stressed the need for an additional high school, to accommodate the huge number of students seeking high school education in the district.

District Education Officer, J. Lynon Martor, told the Liberia News Agency Tuesday that the district has an overall enrollment of 23,050 students, including 12,672 males and 10,378 females in the 27 public schools in the district, but has only one high school.

This, he observed, has led to an overwhelming influx of students seeking high school education at the J. W Pearson High School, the only senior high school in Ganta, commercial capital of Nimba County.

Martor also lamented that the Pearson High School lacks adequate chairs and classrooms to accommodate the huge number of students.

He said the only ongoing projects in the Bain Garr Education District are the renovation of the J. W Pearson auditorium and the Bain Garr DEO’s Office. The auditorium, he explained, contains three classrooms and a hall that was constructed by the PTA in the late 70’s.

Martor said the auditorium renovation project is being sponsored by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), while the DEO’s office is a community self-initiative, which needs additional funding to complete.

He is calling on the Nimba County administration, Government and development partners to build an additional high school to accommodate the large number of students seeking high school education in the most populated education district in Nimba County.

Martor is also calling on the Ministry of Education to provide chairs and prescribed text books to ease the difficulties faced by students and school administrators in imparting knowledge to the students.
