Students Troubled By Prolonged Teachers Boycott

By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent 

TUBMANBURG, March 15 (LINA) - Students of the C.H. Dewey Central High School in Tubmanburg, Bomi County have expressed concern about the continued boycott of classes by teachers.

The vice president of the student council government of the school, Prince Turay told the Liberia News Agency Friday, in Tubmanburg that the teachers have continued to boycott classes on a daily basis since the beginning of the second semester.

Student Turay said the Chemistry, History and Language Arts teachers do not attend classes regularly.

He observed that the action of the teachers, if not checked, could cause many students of the school to fail this year’s West African Examination Council (WAEC) exams.

Vice president Turay said on many occasions they have approached the school administration and Ministry of Education authorities in the county to no avail.

When contacted, the Principal of the school, Madam Miata Fofana, explained that some of the teachers involved are volunteer teachers who are not on Government Payroll.

Madam Fofana said authorities of the Ministry of Education in the county are aware of the problem at the C.H. Dewey Central High School.

She said they have been talking to the teachers to attend classes regularly, while the Ministry of Education Central Office is trying to place their names on the payroll, adding: “That is the only solution to put issue to rest once and for all.
