Legislature Supports PPP, Says Senator Taylor
By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, September 17 (LINA) - Bong County Senator Jewel Taylor has reiterated the support of the National Legislature for the Public-Private
Partnership (PPP) in the education sector.

Senator Taylor said as result of the Liberian civil conflict, government is unable to provide all the basic social services without the engagement of local and international partners.

She made the statement recently at a one-day forum on “National Policy Alternative to Privatization in the delivery of quality public services in Liberia” held at a local hotel in Monrovia.

She explained that the PPP, involving service providers in the education sector, is a pilot project intended to improve the education system of Liberia.

She indicated that over the years Liberian students have not been performing well in the West African Examination Council (WACE) exams which, she noted, has a bad reflection on the country’s education system.

Senator Taylor emphasized that most of the projects undertaken by government in almost all sectors are based on public-private partnerships, noting that government does not have the needed resources to execute them alone.

The forum, which was organized by the international NGO ActionAid in collaboration with the Coalition for Transparency and Accountability in Education (COTAE) and OXFAM, brought together civil society groups, university students and other stakeholders in the education sector.
