Pres. Sirleaf Happy With “Win-Win” Education Consultations

MONROVIA, July 7 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has indicated that she is pleased with ongoing consultations to explore a “win-win” solution to the recently-announced reform measures of the Ministry of Education.

She was speaking exclusively to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) on Tuesday before her departure for New York to attend the Donors Conference of the United Nations on Post-Ebola Recovery of the three worst-affected countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

The President said she has already met with a number of school administrators, teachers, students and other stakeholders, and looks forward to a meeting with the leadership of the House and the Senate upon her return to the country.

On June 30, in a communication to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the Liberian leader indicated that notwithstanding the decisions of the Ministry of Education, she has embarked upon and will continue consultations, including the leadership of the Legislature to find a “win-win” situation.

On Thursday last week, during the regular press briefing of the Ministry of Information, the Ministry of Education announced a number of reform measures including condensing the current school year and reverting to the previous as well as the suspension of WAEC Exams from October of this year to May of next year.

“Upon our return, we will conclude the consultations and announce the outcomes,” President Sirleaf concluded.
