St. Peter’s Claver Catholic School Students
Bassa Catholic School Teachers Join Go-Slow
By Johnson Liway, Grand Bassa County Correspondent
BUCHANAN, March11 (LINA) – Teachers at the St. Peter’s Claver Catholic School in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, have joined Catholic school teachers nation-wide in a go slow action.
Catholic school teachers are demanding a 15 to 20 percent salary increment and the settling of their retroactive pay.
According to the Dean of Students of the St. Peter’s Claver Catholic High School, Moses Gbah, the action comes from the backdrop that Catholic school teachers are currently earning less than Government school teachers.
Gbah, however, pointed out that the teachers are not staying home. He said they go on the school campus, but refuse to teach until they receive communication from the head of the Catholic School Teachers Association in Monrovia that the matter has been resolved.
Speaking to Radio Gbehzohn on Monday, Gbah said that whenever the Association and the Catholic Secretariat reach a compromise, they will return to the classroom.
Meanwhile, when contacted, the Principal of St. Peter’s Claver Catholic School, Sister Grace Goll told the Liberia News Agency that the situation has caused a setback to the student's learning process.
She assured that everything is being done to end the go slow action.
