VOINJAMA, June 29 (LINA) – Lofa County 10th Judicial Circuit Court Judge, Nancy Finda Sammy, has challenged the youths of Liberia to join the struggle to improve the country’s educational system.
Judge Sammy claimed that the school system is currently producing poorly prepared youths as many students in high schools and universities are incapable of measuring up to standard.
“Some are unable to spell well, others wallow in subject-verb agreement while a bulk of them is unable to compose a fitting friendly or application letter,” Judge Sammy emphasized.
The Lofa County Circuit Court Judge made the assertion recently when she served as the keynote speaker at the induction ceremony of the newly-elected student council government of the Voinjama Multilateral High School in Voinjama.
Speaking on the topic: “Why Education is extremely important in one’s life,” Judge Sammy said education is instrumental in the development process of any society through the teaching of values and virtue that make one fully capacitated and civilized.
She noted that despite the many problems that have been highlighted about the educational system by authorities of the Ministry of Education, she is optimistic that all is not yet lost, noting that light will still shine at the end of the tunnel.
She urged students of the Voinjama Multilateral High School to focus their attention on their lessons and do away with vices that could undermine and destroy their future.
