Clergyman Raps On Challenges In Education Sector
By S. Kannay Ziamo, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

GANTA, August 31 (LINA) - The Bishop of the Tabernacle of Praise Association of Churches has opined that challenges in the education sector need to be given urgent attention to put the country on par with other countries in the sub-region.

Bishop Jackson G. Weah observed that there are numerous challenges facing Liberia's education system, noting that until they are resolved the country will continue to trail behind other nations in Africa and the world.

Delivering the keynote address at the 16th Commencement Convocation of the Messiah Christian Academy in Ganta Monday, Bishop Weah named some of the challenges in the education sector as low budgetary support to the Ministry of Education and corruption in the classrooms, among others.

Bishop Weah also named poor lesson presentation by teachers, lack of parental supervision, excessive social activities in schools, lack of modern textbooks and improper monitoring and evaluation by education stakeholders.

Bishop Weah, who spoke on the theme: "Challenges Facing The Educational System In Post War Liberia," wants the government and parents to make timely interventions to bring total reform to the country's education sector.

Bishop Weah said although the Government of Liberia has made some interventions in the sector, more needs to be done to further improve
the system.

He observed that Liberian students are brilliant and capable of competing with other students around the world, adding, "They only need to be provided the right materials and conducive learning environment."
