Volunteer teachers miss employment procedure
Date Uploaded: Nov 12, 2013

MONROVIA, Nov.12 (LINA) - An Education Ministry official has said the failure by volunteer teachers to understand the procedure of getting government payroll is a major challenge facing the Ministry.

Mr. J. Shannor Goe, Deputy Director of Communication at the Education Ministry, said rather than go to the Civil Service Agency and meet the necessary criteria to get on the payroll, some volunteer teachers besiege the Ministry of Education demanding to be placed on payroll without going through the proper channel.

Mr. Goe, who made the statement Tuesday at the Education Ministry in an interview with the Liberia News Agency, said the Act establishing the Ministry does not give it the power to place anyone on payroll.


This function, he said, was the preserve of the Finance Ministry and the Civil Service Agency which are clothed with the authority to do this.

Goe pointed out that the Education Ministry has no opposition to
volunteer teachers getting on government payroll but wants to see it done through a transparent, legal and fair process.


He has meanwhile assured that government’s policies on free and compulsory primary education still remain in force, stressing that the Education Ministry is determined to implement it to the letter.
