No official Reason For KRTTI Strike Action, Official

By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, Feb 8 (LINA) - The Director of Kakata Rural Teachers Training Institute (KRTTI), Precious Brownell Dennis, says instructors of the institute have not lodged any official complaint as reasons leading to their current go-slow action.

She said they have nonetheless refused to teach, thus undermining the smooth functioning of the institution. 

Speaking Friday in an exclusive interview with the Liberia News Agency at the Ministry of Education in Monrovia, Director Dennis said if staffs and instructors of the institution have any grievances, they should follow the proper channel, rather than embark on a strike action that has crippled the activities of the institution.

Director Dennis said she would not relent to institute the necessary measures to ensure that KRTTI maintains the status of a professional teacher training institution in Liberia.

She said the institute has put in place a policy to ensure that staffs and instructors are regular and timely in performing their duties and adhering to the mandate of the institution.

Director Dennis hoped that the staffs and instructors would listen to authorities of the Ministry of Education and return to work as soon as possible, cautioning that Liberians should not always resort to violence to address their grievances.

The KRTTI Director has meanwhile disclosed that her life has been threatened by community dwellers that are encroaching on the property of the KRTTI.

She, however, renewed her commitment to doing the right thing for the country.

In a related development, the Ministry of Education is expected to intervene in the KRTTI go-slow action which started two days ago, a source at the Education Ministry told the Liberia News Agency.
