24 Schools Embark On Accountability Conference
By Chiedi E. Nyenmoh

MONROVIA, December 10 (LINA) –Twenty-four educational institutions in Nimba, Montserrado and Grand Bassa Counties are participating in the Hope Alliances Liberia (HAL) students accountability conference to promote the fight against corruption in the education system.

The conference, which started recently in Ganta, Nimba County and continued on Wednesday in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, will continue in Sanniquellie, Nimba County to recap messages to students and give them the opportunity to talk to stakeholders on the issue of transparency and accountability within the school system.

Disclosing this on UNMIL Radio’s “Coffee Break” talk show Friday morning, HAL Executive Director Benedict Kwato stated that they are working with students from the fourth to the eleventh grades, noting that HAL is excluding twelfth graders because they are pre-occupied with preparations for the West African Examination Council (WAEC) exams.

He said the organization is using two students in each class and sixteen in each
of the participating schools.

Kwato said he strongly believes that students today are the leaders of tomorrow and that if they work with them now to build the foundation of transparency and accountability, they will grow up with the mindset that corruption is a bad thing.

He also said they are preparing the students to become better people in the future and for positions of public trust by carefully making decisions and taking actions in the best interest of the people.

Kwato indicated that they are also in partnership with the schools to send two administrators to attend the conference with their students.

He disclosed that the County Education Officer was the guest speaker of the conference held in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.
