Ex-Information Minister Wants Plight of Teachers Prioritized
By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, October 5 (LINA) - “Education builds a nation and if Liberia should be developed, the plight of teachers must be prioritized,” former Information Minister Emmanuel Bowier has observed.

He argued that teachers build nations by molding the minds of the human resource who eventually become doctors, economists, lawyers and policy makers, among others.

The former Information Minister made the statement Wednesday at a program marking the observance of World Teachers’ Day held at the YMCA auditorium in central Monrovia.

He noted that the lack of appropriate incentives for teachers is undermining the adequate development of the human resource capacity of Liberia.

Rev. Bowier stressed that teachers are vital to building the manpower of any nation, noting that it is about time that government provides better incentives for teachers, adding, "Teachers who train policy makers make less salary than policy makers."

Meanwhile, Rev. Bowier is urging Liberians to appreciate teachers who play a major role in developing the nation’s human capital.

The World Teachers’ Day program organized by the National Teachers Association of Liberia (NTAL) was held under the theme: “Valuing Teachers, Improving Their Status.”
