By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, October 5 (LINA) – Bong County Senator Jewel Howard-Taylor has proposed what an ‘educational contract’ with the Ministry of Education, teachers and parents for the educational advancement of school-age children in Liberia.

Under the contract, the Education Ministry is required to provide the requisite supplies to the schools; teachers to teach the children well, while parents should ensure that their children are kept in school at all times.

The Bong County Senator made the proposal recently during the dedication of a US$34,000 high school in Sanoyea City, Sanoyea District in Bong County which, according to her, is in fulfillment of the wishes of the people of the district and all stakeholders.

“I want all of us to make maximum use of these facilities,” Howard-Taylor pointed out, adding that the educational advancement of the children will be assured if these provisions are fully implemented.

Named in honor of a historic contributor Kerkula Giddings, the school is part of Senator Taylor’s Legislative Support Projects. She described the completion and dedication of the only high school in the district as a great initiative.

In remarks, Acting Bong County Superintendent Anthony B. Sheriff lauded Senator Taylor for ensuring the successful completion of the project.

He challenged other lawmakers of the county to emulate Senator Taylor’s example so that development can reach other parts of the county.

Mr. Sheriff vowed to collaborate with the county education office to erect checkpoints at the payment window of teachers “who are not committed to their work but receive their salaries.”

The dedicatory ceremony was graced by high level government officials s including Rivercess County Senator Francis Paye, Margibi County Senator Jim Tomonalah and Bong County District #5 Representative Edward Kafia.
