MONROVIA, August 31 (LINA) – Bong County Senator Jewel Howard Taylor has disclosed that the faculty and students of the Kerkula Giddings High School in Sanoyea City, Bong County will be introduced to computer literacy in the 2016/17 academic year.
Senator Taylor made the disclosure Wednesday in an interview with the Liberia News Agency (LINA).
She noted that the program, which is the first in the history of the school, is being implemented by her in collaboration with the Samuel Morris Scholar Program under a non-profit innovation called Innovative Education Liberia (IEL).
The Program, which is in honor of the Liberian Samuel Morris, is being undertaken by the Taylor University (TU) in the United States, in recognition of his bountiful achievements at that university.
Computerized learning programs will be used to teach students from grades seven to 10 in Mathematics and Science.
The Samuel Morris Scholar Program is one of several programs helping to transition the educational system in Liberia for the better.
Meanwhile, the Principal of the school, Annie G. Paye, has lauded Senator Taylor for the new program which, she said, will not only impact students but the staff of the institution.
"Since the creation of Sanoyea District and the school, this will be the first time that our kids will have access to computer, least to talk about the quality of knowledge the program is expected to provide in the selected subjects," she told LINA
