CEO Urges Unpaid Teachers to Exercise Restraint
By Chris Nyenapee, Grand Gedeh County Correspondent
ZWEDRU, Jan 27 (LINA) -The County Education Officer (CEO), Hamson Darwolor, has pleaded with teachers whose names were left out of the December 2013 payroll to exercise restraint, as the Ministry of Education strives to find a solution to their problem.
He described the deletion of the teachers’ names from the payroll as an error from the Ministry of Finance, which affected hardworking and dedicated educators during the Christmas season.
The county chief education officer’s appeal comes in the wake of concerns raised by the affected teachers in Grand Gedeh County whose names were erroneously deleted from the payroll.
The affected teachers are calling for an early solution to the problem to bring them relief and avoid an embarrassing situation to the local education system.
A representative of the 50 affected teachers from all the education districts across Grand Gedeh County, told the Liberia News Agency that they cannot continue to live on empty promises and may lay down their chalk, if nothing is done to speedily resolve the issue.
But Rev. Darwolor stressed that the Education Ministry and the Civil Service Agency are working assiduously to resolve the issue of payment to the affected teachers.
