Science Teachers Shortage Worries Principal
By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, February 13 (LINA) - The Principal of Tienii Wonde Public School in Tewor District, Grand Cape Mount County, E. Boima Koroma , has lamented the lack of trained science teachers for the ninth and 12th grades at the school.

He observed that the lack of these teachers in the educational system is one of the key factors responsible for the poor performance of students in the West African Examination Council (WAEC) tests.

Principal Koroma made the statement at his Tienii office at the weekend in an interview with the Liberia News Agency.

He stressed the need for government to assign trained teachers to schools to replace the unqualified ones who are currently teaching, if Liberian students are to make headway in the West African Examination Council tests.

Koroma told LINA that the school has an enrollment of 1,137 students, comprising 529 females and 608 males in both the morning and afternoon sessions.

At the same time, Koroma has disclosed that at present the school does not have a laboratory and library where teachers and students can carry out research.

He also revealed that all of the school’s six buildings are in deplorable condition, and that there was a need to renovate them before the rainy season so that students are not prevented from attending classes.
