Senator Gueh Wants Education Declared ‘National Emergency’
By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, April 9 (LINA) – The Senate Committee Chairman on Education, Dallas A. Gueh, is calling for the declaration of education as a national emergency.

“Education is crucial to the survival of Liberia as it is yet to produce the needed workforce to mend its economy,” Gueh noted in his remarks Wednesday at the ongoing Governance Commission Policy Dialogue on Liberia reaching the middle income country goal in 2030 held at a local hotel in Sinkor.

He believes that the present generation is phasing out, especially when the Governance Commission (GC) statistics reveals lack of training in key sectors required to meet the technological and educational needs of the country’s current and future generations.

“If this country does not take practical steps to remedy this situation, the system could become extinct upon the departure of this generation,” he said, adding, “We must now accommodate needed strategies to correct the system.”

He described the report as a product of hard work, but stressed the need for solutions to the problems identified in the country’s education sector as reaching the middle income country goal starts in the classroom.

Gueh promised the Senate’s support to the enhancement of education in the country, and called for the endorsement of all recommendations contained in the report with practical steps taken for their attainment.
