Pres. Sirleaf Raps On Developments In Education Sector
By Robert Dixon, LINA

MONROVIA, January 26 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has disclosed that 1,579,058 students, 48 percent of whom are females, are currently enrolled in the 5,571 public and private schools across the country.

Delivering her State of the Nation address before the 53rd National Legislature at the Capitol Building in Monrovia Monday, the Liberian leader said with this effort, the government will “finally keep the ghosts buried wherever they are.”

She said that Liberia’s three rehabilitated teacher training institutes and special programs have trained 15,345 teachers and that the teacher verification exercise is well advanced in several counties.

According to President Sirleaf, the newly-constructed Monrovia Vocational Training Center will board up to 200 students and accommodate up to 1,000 day students.

She said the Booker Washington Institute is now going through organizational change, and operational assessment to ensure that it attains the goal of becoming a junior college.

She also pointed out that the Klay Basic Agriculture Training Center now hosts 150 boarding students and is producing vegetables and other produce which enable students to feed themselves and have a surplus for sale.

The Liberian Leader indicated that the Tumutu Agriculture Training Center in Bong County is being reconstructed to host 200 students to ensure the attainment of a similar objective.

“More than 500 young Liberians have benefited from bilateral and capacity development scholarships abroad,” the Liberian leader added.
