Cabinet Evaluates Education Sector Performance

MONROVIA, September 10 (LINA) - Cabinet has mandated a realistic implementation of actionable targets as the nation transitions to improve the quality of learning in the education system.

The mandate follows a careful evaluation and analysis of the education sector performance updates, according to an Executive Mansion release.

Cabinet received updates on various sectoral reforms in the education system, including the elimination of ghost names on the payroll in collaboration with the
Civil Service Agency (CSA); identifying unqualified teachers, hiring and training of trainable teachers through the Rural Teacher Training Institutions.

Cabinet was also briefed on the status of the Partnership Schools for Liberia (PSL) that would allow the Ministry of Education in concert with private operators to target 185 schools in 13 counties across the country.

Of the 185 schools, 92 were randomly chosen as PSL schools, while 93 will become the comparison group.

The partnership would enable the following eight private operators to run, manage and operate selected schools namely: BRAC – 20; Bridge –23; Liberian Youth Network, LIYONET – 14; More than Me – 6; Omega –19; Rising – 5; Stella Maris – 4; Street Child – 12.

Meanwhile, Cabinet has approved the scope of operation and concept of a series of Community Engagement Forums that will bring government closer to the population through broad-based interactions.

The Forum, according to the Cabinet, will serve as a vehicle that will practically allow ordinary citizens, social cum community leaders and civil society organizations to come face-to-face with their leaders through dialogue and in a user-friendly manner in order to appreciate progress, achievements, challenges and the way forward.
