Bong Technical College Loses Students to Other Schools

By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, Aug 12 (LINA)  -  Several students of the Bong County Technical College in Gbarnga have started transferring to other institutions of higher learning in the country, accusing the college’s administration of poorly managing the institution and delaying their studies.

The defecting students say they are leaving the institution because they have lost confidence in the ability of the administration to run the institution effectively.

Reacting to the students’ claims, the college’s Vice President for Administration, Dr. Richard Sondah, told the Liberia News Agency Thursday that the administration is “studying the situation” and will comment on it at a later date he did not disclose.

The students, many of whom have spent more than two years at the institution, said they do not know their academic standings.

They told LINA in Gbarnga that their stay at the school will delay their college education.

Some 80 students from the College recently sat the entrance examination of the Cuttington University in Suakoko.

In separate interviews after sitting the Cuttington entrance and placement exams, many of the students told LINA they have been attending the Bong County Technical College since it opened three years ago, but do not know when they will graduate.

The Bong County Technical College currently use the institution’s unfinished building to conduct classes.
