CEO Decries Malpractices By Teachers

By Richard D Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent  

KAKATA, March 5 (LINA) - Montserrado County Education Officer, Cecelia Reeves, has said stringent measures await teachers often engaged in sexual exploitation of female students and extortion of money from pupils.

Reeves noted that the issues of sexual exploitation and money extortion from students, especially in Montserrado County, have become overwhelmingly alarming.

She said the government through the Ministry of Education will not relent in drastically dealing with anyone caught in such unwholesome acts.

The Montserrado County CEO sounded the warning in Kakata Tuesday when she received assorted school materials donated to the ministry by Winrock-Action to Reduce Child Labor or Winrock- ARCH, an international non-governmental organization.

The Education Ministry official warning comes amidst calls from parents, guardians as well as ordinary Liberians for action against acts of sexual abuse and extortion of money from students by teachers.

She observed that the extortion of money and trading of grades for sex are responsible for the drop in the number of female enrollment at schools, adding: “This ugly act should stop, because it contravenes the teachers’ code of conduct.”
