Over 100 School Administrators, Teachers In Nimba Get Training

By S.  Kannay Ziamo, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

GANTA, September 6 (LINA) – Over 100 school administrators and teachers from 60 schools in Zoe-Geh District, Nimba County have received training in school administration ahead of the start of the academic year.

Courses they were also drilled in include school supervision, financial management, budgeting, classroom management, student assessment and lesson planning, among others.

The workshop, which was held over the weekend, came as a result of an appeal from the District Education Officer to Pastor Roger Domah, a prominent son of the district to help train the teachers to prepare them for the upcoming academic year.

Speaking to the Liberia New Agency (LINA) following the training, Pastor Domah said the training was his way of helping the government improve the education system.

He added that the lessons presented were in line with the Ministry of Education guidelines on teacher training.

Domah cited impediments to the education sector as poor assessment of students by teachers, lack of trained teachers as well as low salaries and benefits for teachers, among others.

He noted that if these challenges are adequately addressed by the government, the country’s educational system will regain its pre-war status.

Domah told LINA that he and his team of highly-trained educators have conducted similar training in Nimba County for the past five years.

Representing the MOE, the Administrative Assistant to the Zoe-Geh District Education Officer, Moses Sonkarlay, lauded Pastor Domah and his team for providing the opportunity for educators in the area to be trained.

Sonkarlay said the training was timely as the district education office was in dire need of such opportunity.

Meanwhile, Sonkarlay has challenged the beneficiaries to put into practice the knowledge acquired for the betterment of the district, the county and the country at large.
