Ten Madina School Teachers Off Gov’t Payroll

By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, March 24 (LINA) -The Vice Principal for Administration at the Madina Public School in Garwula district, Grand Cape Mount County, Siafa Gray, is concerned that delays in placing 10 volunteer teachers on government payroll could cause the school to shut down.

He said out of the 15 teachers at the school, only five are currently on government payroll.

Gray told the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in Madina, at the weekend, that the teachers are planning to lay down their chalks, because they have not been paid for over two years.

Meanwhile, Gray has commended citizens of the area who have been compensating the volunteer teachers for the past two years.

He also spoke of the lack of instructional materials such as chairs, desks, stationery and text books that could make learning easy for the students.

Gray said that the school has an enrollment of 423, with most students using cement blocks and other objects as seats, while some students bring chairs from their homes to school to sit on.
