By Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent
ROBERTSPORT, March 26 (LINA) - The Principal of Sewu Public School in Tewor District, Mr. B. Biokai Kaiwu, says the drastic drop in student population is attributed to the Ebola uncertainty among parents to send their children to school.
He said many parents in the Tewor District, Grand Cape Mount County, are afraid to send their children to school for the fear of the recurrence of the deadly Ebola virus which has claimed many lives.
According to the Liberia News Agency correspondent in the county, Principal Kaiwu made the statement on the school campus in an interview on the state of affairs at the school since its resumption of classes.
Kiawu told LINA that the parents expressed that they would send their children to school when the government declares the country Ebola-free.
He said currently, elders, chiefs, Imams and pastors are conducting recruitment exercises in nearby towns and villages for the children to enroll in the school.
