MONROVIA, January 14 (LINA)-The Ministry of Education (MOE) has suspended the payment of fees for the West African Examination Council (WAEC) in all public schools during registration for Academic Year 2015.

The Assistant Education Minister for Early Childhood Learning, Felecia Doe-Somah who made the disclosure Wednesday, said the WAEC fees will be paid based upon further consultations with Parent Teachers Associations (PTA) and school administrations adding, “This measure is intended to afford parents more opportunity to garner financial support for their children.”

She made the disclosure at the Ministry of Information daily Ebola press conference held at the ministry in Monrovia.

Minister Somah also told school administrators to permit students in classes with colored clothes until parents can afford to purchase school uniforms for their children.

She also called on the faculties of all public schools  to restitute any money collected for registration as the ministry has instituted a
no-fee policy for basic education in the country.

Meanwhile, Somah has disclosed that the government is currently concluding the procurement of 15 vehicles to be distributed to County Education Officers (CEO), while District Education Officers (DEO) will be provided motorbikes.

She noted that the provision of vehicles and motorbikes is intended to equip the county education teams with transportation as they monitor the education system in rural Liberia.
