Bong Public School Teachers Registering For MOE Tests
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, April 4 (LINA) -The Ministry of Education (MOE) has begun registration for public tests to be administered to all public school teachers in Bong County.

More than 1,500 public school teachers Monday morning gathered at the Dolokelen Gboveh High School in Gbarnga to register for the tests, despite a call by the National Teachers Association of Liberia (NTAL) for them to stay away from the process.

The Ministry recently announced that it will administer tests for public school teachers. Under the exercise, which is part of its reform process, the competence and capacity of all public school teachers in the country will be tested.

However, the NTAL has called on its members to boycott the test on grounds that it is intended to delete names of teachers from the government payroll.

Our reporter who visited the Gboveh High School campusMonday morning said teachers were seen in long queues to register for the test with some calling on the NTAL to dialogue with the government.

They said while it is true that the Ministry of Education did not adequately inform the NTAL about the test, it was necessary to find a common ground to move the education system forward.

The teachers clarified that they are not afraid of the test but that the lack of information is responsible for the controversy that has engulfed the exercise.

There are reports that turnout for the test in Sanniquellie, Nimba County was low but MOE Assistant Minister for Teachers Education Advertus Oreal Wright told LINA that the Ministry has registered several teachers in the county to sit the test at a later date.

The teachers are being tested in Mathematics and English.
