Dismissal Awaits Bong Teachers Involved In Ethical Breach
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, November 3 (LINA) - Bong County Education Officer (CEO) Edward Kpulun has vowed to dismiss instructors in the county who are caught having affairs with female students.

The Bong CEO said teachers should serve as mentors and role models, instead of using the classroom as a platform to abuse female students for grades.

He sounded the warning at a ‘Back to School’ program organized by the County School System and partners in Gbarnga recently.

Kpulun’s statement comes in the wake of the detention of a teacher of the William V. S. Tubman Gray High School for allegedly raping a female student on October 11 this year.

According to him, the County School System has embarked on regular monitoring of teachers and students in all public and private schools to eradicate this unwholesome practice from the school system across the county.

The Bong County CEO encouraged students to study their lessons and desist from acts that would undermine their academic endeavors.

In remarks, the president of the Bong County Branch of the National Teachers Association, James Miller, urged instructors to perform their duties in keeping with the Professional Code of Conduct.

Miller noted that the teaching profession is a respectable field and as such teachers must do all they can to maintain public confidence.
