Official Wants Free Primary Education Enforced in Gedeh

By Chris Nyenapee, Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

CAVALLA DISTRICT, March 8 (LINA) - The County Education Officer of Grand Gedeh County, Hamson Darwolor, has stressed the need to enforce the compulsory free primary education policy in the county.

CEO Darwolor told the Liberia News Agency that despite the free primary education policy of Government to ensure that all Liberian children attain at least primary education, some parents are refusing to send their children to school.

He said citizens and residents who refuse to send their children to school under the free and compulsory policy of government need to be told in no uncertain terms that they must conform or be penalized by a court.

The County Education Officer made the comment while on a tour with Superintendent Peter L. Solo, during which he observed children of school-going age loitering during school hours.

He said the practice seems to be a county-wide practice that needs to be stopped, noting that “today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders.”

Meanwhile, The CEO has instructed the administration of the Solo Town Elementary School to cite parents of school-age children to a Town Hall meeting to give reasons for refusing to send their children to school.

Solo Town is situated about 11-km from the western entrance to the capital Zwedru and has one of the most modern school buildings in Cavalla District.
