DEO Calls For Support To Education System
By David Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, March 3 (LINA) - The District Education Officer (DEO) of Dewein District in Bomi County, A. Dmentus Zinnah, has said that the Government needs to invest more money in the country's education system to improve its output.

DEO Zinnah emphasized that it was imperative that government invests in education, so that Liberia will become an outstanding nation in Africa and the world.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in the district on Monday, DEO Zinnah said teacher training institutions in the
country should be upgraded to university level to train teachers at
Bachelor Degree level.

He said, if this is done, the shortage of university degree holders in the teaching profession will be minimized and qualified teachers will be recruited into the educational system to improve the standard of the country's academic program.

DEO Zinnah disclosed that the district will shortly conduct training for its teachers and principals, to empower them and improve their teaching skills, to effectively implement the Ministry of Education school curriculum.

He said the district has 20 elementary schools, one junior high school, but no senior high school.

DEO Zinnah further disclosed that the Ministry of Education recently
provided 72 chairs for the only junior high school in Jenneh #3, but said some of the chairs will, however, be given to the Sasstown Public
School in Sasstown, Bomi County.

Meanwhile, the DEO has said an agreement was reached at the District Sitting in January 2014 in Jenneh # 3, to build a school in Dogbeh
Town, Dewein District in the county.

DEO Zinnah also disclosed that Dewein District and local authorities of the Ministry of Education have agreed to complete one of the buildings constructed in Jenneh # 3, by previous governments, for use as a senior high school in the district.
