Bomi Schools Can’t Hold Growing Number Of Students - CEO
By David Pamas Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, June 28 (LINA) - Bomi County Education Officer (CEO), J. Seo Davies, has expressed fear that the local school system lacks the capacity to accommodate the growing number of students in the county.

CEO Davies said some schools, especially the elementary divisions, are congested and lack the capacity to accommodate additional students.

In an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Tubmanburg Monday, CEO Davies attributed the overcrowding of primary schools to government’s Free and Compulsory Education Policy.

He said the Ministry of Education has been requested to construct annexes to the schools to accommodate the huge enrolment of students.

He said the Bomi County School System (BCSS) has experienced 20 percent increase in the enrolment of students this academic year.

He did not, however, specify the number of students.

He named the Gbarjike Public and the H.Q. Taylor schools as being among schools that lack the capacity to accommodate more students.

According to CEO Davies, if the request to MOE to construct annexes to
the designated schools is met, it will provide many other school age children an opportunity to get an education.
