MOE's 'No Promotion' Pronouncement Claims House’s Attention

By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe, LINA

MONROVIA, June 16 (LINA) - The House of Representatives has described as “disturbing” a recent policy statement made by Education Ministry authorities that schools will be closed on June 30 without promotion of students.

Lawmakers said the pronouncement, which has serious ramifications, is an attempt to alter the educational calendar that was previously endorsed, with some legislative inputs.

The legislators made the observation during discussions on two separate letters to House Speaker J. Alex Tyler by Montserrado County Representative Henry Fahnbulleh and J. Byron Browne of Grand Bassa County, requesting Plenary to invite Education Minister George Warner and his two deputies to explain the ‘no promotion’ policy.

Warner recently pronounced on the state-run Liberia Broadcasting System that the present academic year will end on June 30, and that there will be no promotion of students, considering the period commencing from the opening of school to date as “study class period”.

Meanwhile, the House of Representatives Plenary has mandated Chief Clerk Mildred Sayon to write the Minister of Education and his deputies inviting them to appear next week Tuesday to provide clarity on the recent pronouncement that schools will close on June 30 without promotion of students.
