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.
