MOE Drafts Policy To Improve Education Administration
By Decontee M. Wesseh

MONROVIA, September 24 (LINA) –The Ministry of Education (MOE) has drafted the Educator Management Policy of Liberia focusing on
teachers, school administrators and education officers.

The document was drafted with stakeholders’ input with support from USAID and the Liberia Teacher Training Program (LTTP), Education
Minister George Werner disclosed Thursday at the Ministry of Information press conference.

According to Werner, the policy is in line with the vision of the management of human resources of the Government as articulated in the
Civil Service Human Resources Manual.

Werner noted that the policy defines the qualifications, standards, certification and licensing professional development, recruitment and
deployment, career structure, rewards and remuneration and working conditions of different categories of educators.

He indicated that the policy provides a path for enhancing the professional status of educators so that they can more effectively
contribute to the goal identified in the preamble of the Education Reform Act of 2011.

The policy document also focuses on the regulations and procedures for a teacher or administrator who has completed a certificate program to
become licensed after successfully completing a probationary period of employment, he added.

The Education Minister stated that the policy focuses on in-service professional development of different categories of educators.

He further explained that the policy addresses issues of educators’ rewards and remuneration, illuminating a pay scale based on
qualifications and experiences as well as discussing other financial and non-financial incentives for educators.

The final sections of the policy address the issues of funding and other resources needed to implement the policy, the timeline for
implementation of various aspects of the policy, guidelines for evaluating and revising it, Werner said.
