Butuo Central High Lacks Teachers -Rep. Kogar

By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe, LINA

MONROVIA, May 20 (LINA) - Nimba County Representative Samuel Kogar has disclosed that Butuo Central High School lacks teachers in a number of subjects that are vital to students being qualified graduates.

He named the subjects as Chemistry, Physics, Geography, Biology, Economics and English.

Kogar indicated that since the commencement of academic activities this year, students have been going to class with no instructors to teach these six basic subjects.

The concern was contained in a communication to House Speaker J. Alex Tyler dated May 6, in which Kogar requested Plenary to invite authorities of the Education Ministry to explain why teachers are yet to be assigned at the school.   

He explained that authorities of the county had appealed to the UNMIL Ghanaian Contingent assigned in the area at the time to help fill the gap, something they accepted and did from 2013-2014.

According to the lawmaker, since the departure of the UNMIL soldiers from the county, the Education Ministry has not been able to assign instructors to the school to teach these subjects.

Kogar pointed out that the situation is causing serious problems for the students, especially senior high students who are to sit the West African Examination Council exams this year.

After the communication was read in Session on Tuesday, Plenary forwarded it to the Committee on Education for review with the mandate to report in two weeks.
