Two Zorzor District Public Schools Face Closure
Date Uploaded: Nov 24, 2013

MONROVIA, Nov. 16 (LINA) - The Worlorwumo and Goizo public schools in Bluyeama Clan, Zorzor District, Lofa County, are on the verge of closure due to lack of teachers.

Disclosing the information to the Liberia News Agency in an interview on Saturday, the Chairlady of Worlorwumo Town Women Development Association (WTWDA), Ms. Kollie Flomo,  said volunteer teachers in the two schools have laid down their chalks and abandoned the schools because of the prolonged failure of the Education Ministry to include them on its payroll.

Ms. Flomo claimed most of the volunteer teachers have served the schools for more than two years, hoping the Education Ministry would have formally hired them by now.

She also said the schools are physically deplorable, and appealed to the government to rehabilitate them to help meet the academic needs of the growing student population in the area.

She appealed to the Education Ministry to include the teachers on its payroll, assign trained teachers to the schools, and provide instructional materials to prevent closure.

President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf recently dismissed the Deputy Minister of Education for Administration, Mr. Isaac Tetteh, for his “failure to demonstrate leadership in cleaning up the Ministry’s payroll and hiring additional teachers.
