EI Official Decries Uneven Distribution Of Teachers
By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe, LINA

MONROVIA, September 7(LINA) -The visiting Senior Regional Coordinator for Africa of Education International (EI), Emmanuel Fatoma, says the non-equitable distribution of teachers across the country is one of the key factors responsible for the poor performance of Liberia’s education system.

Fatoma, who is based in Accra, Ghana, noted that more qualified teachers are deployed in urban Liberia than the rural areas, putting students residing in the hinterland at a disadvantage when it comes to quality education.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency Monday in Monrovia at the start of a three-day training workshop on “Teacher Effectiveness”, the EI official stressed the need to build the capacity of more teachers to make them effective in stimulating the nation’s education sector and its young people.

Fatoma also underscored the urgent need to establish a “Teachers Management System” that will work with the Government, National Teachers Association of Liberia (NTAL) and other stakeholders to address problems that confront teachers and education as a whole in the country.

He disclosed that the workshop, being held under the Theme: “Global Teachers Efforts For Better Education”, was organized by the EI in collaboration with the NTAL.

The workshop is the first of its kind in Liberia and is funded by the International Global Partnership for Education.

Fifty participants comprising NTAL officials, teachers and principals of both public and private schools from the 15 political sub-divisions of Liberia are attending he workshop discussing Education Reforms, Policy Proposals for Quality Education, Issues Affecting The Education Sector and The Way Forward.
