Bomi NTAL Head Wants Newly-Recruited Teachers Paid

By David Pamas Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, June 18 (LINA) - The President of the National Teachers Association of Liberia (N'TAL) Bomi County Branch, Isaac Kamara, has renewed calls for government to pay public schools teachers assigned in the county.

Mr. Kamara disclosed that some of the teachers have been teaching at schools in the county for more than two years and have not been paid.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency in Tubmanburg recently, Kamara said the teachers were trained by the government and assigned at schools across the county, but he does not understand why they are yet to be paid by the government.

The NTAL’s Bomi County official told LINA that over 75 teachers, including those assigned at the Beh Town Public School, are yet to receive their salaries while three of the teachers assigned at the Beh Town Public School are not yet placed on the payroll.

Kamara, who is also the Principal of the Beh Town Public School, noted that if the educational system of the county is to be improved, the government should begin paying the salaries and arrears of its teachers and place those who have volunteered over the years on the payroll.

He called on the newly-confirmed Education Minister George Werner to consider the payment of teachers across the country as his first priority.
