Cape Mount CEO Wants Gov’t Enforce Free Education Law
By D.Ignatius Roberts, Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent
ROBERTSPORT, October 9 (LINA)-Grand Cape Mount County Education Officer (CEO) Dwight Harvey has called on government to enforce the Free and Compulsory Education Law.
He observed that the failure of government to enforce this law is one of the factors responsible for parents using their children as bread winners.
CEO Harvey made the statement Friday in the auditorium of the Robertsport High School during the formal opening of a two-day workshop on Post Joint Education Sector Review County Engagement (JESR).
He said if the law on Free and Compulsory Education is to achieve its intended goals, government should arrest parents who are in the constant habit of using their children to sell at street corners during school hours.
Harvey stressed that the enforcement of the law will compel parents to stop using their children as bread winners, and send them to school.
The CEO noted that children can only become productive, effective and efficient future leaders if they acquire the requisite education.
