Bong WAEC Results Frustrate CEO

By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, August 9 (LINA) - Bong County Education Officer (CEO), Edward Kpulun, has expressed disappointment over the “poor” performance of students in 2016 West African Examination Council (WAEC) exams.

CEO Kpulun has, therefore, called on Liberians to help the government transform the educational system.

The education official noted that the result recently released by WAEC, especially for Bong County, is appalling and as such there is a need for all stakeholders to take concrete steps to revive the sector.

He disclosed plans for a massive rotation of teachers in the county as one of the measures his office is instituting to improve the sector.

Kpulun has also announced that his office will ensure that no school in the county will be allowed to graduate students who fail the WAEC exams in keeping with the Ministry of Education mandate.

He praised the St. Martin’s Catholic High School in Gbarnga for its excellent performance in the exams as the school ranks high among the over 50 schools in the county that sat the exams.

Kpulun disclosed that of the 87 candidates from the school who sat the test, 64 passed, putting the school at the top of all the other schools in the county.

He named the Dolokelen Gboveh High School, St. Peter’s Episcopal High School and the Liberia Opportunities Industrialization Center (LOIC) extension as institutions that flunked miserable in the exams.

Meanwhile, he has lauded the ninth graders in the county for their excellent performance in the junior high level WAEC exams.
