Teachers Warned Against Stigmatizing Ebola Survivors
By Ignatius Robert, LINA Grand Cape Mount Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, September 9 (LINA) –Teachers in Grand Cape Mount County have been warned against stigmatizing students who are Ebola survivors and urged to rather encourage them to pursue their education.

The warning was sounded by the County Education Officer, Dwight Harvey, in his remarks Tuesday at the official opening of a six-day Teachers Training Workshop in Robertsport organized by the Ministry of Education (MOE) with funding from UNICEF.

Harvey said stigmatizing students who are Ebola survivors could make them to drop from school and render their future bleak.

The Liberian educator noted that if teachers stigmatize children it could create psychological problems for them.

Meanwhile, Harvey has admonished teachers and students to properly manage the use of cell phones in schools to avoid disruption of classes.

The workshop brought together 54 teachers and principals from the 18 schools in Commonwealth District of the county.
