NTLA To Construct Teachers’ Office in Bomi

By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, March 16 (LINA) -The President of the National Teachers Association of Liberia (NTAL) Bomi County branch, Mr. Isaac Kamara, has disclosed plans by the association to construct a teachers' office in the County. 

Mr. Kamara said funding for the project will come from the association’s operational fund and contributions from the teachers themselves.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Tubmanburg Saturday, Mr. Kamara put the cost of the building at US$75,000, which will be completed in two years.

He said when completed, the office will be the venue for meetings and discussion of issues affecting teachers’ in the county.

Mr. Kamara said his consultative visits with teachers in Senjeh, Dewein, Suehn Mecca and Klay Districts revealed that students in some schools in those districts are still sitting on the floors due to lack of chairs.

He said it was regrettable to see that this was still happening in Africa’s oldest independent nation.

He said another disappointing thing was that some teachers had been constrained to leave their areas assignment to go to the Ministry of Education in Monrovia to update their names, while students have been left without teachers.

Meanwhile, Kamara is urging the Government to immediately find an amicable solution to the problems of the teachers, because it was negatively impacting on the learning of the students.
