MONROVIA, Dec 7 (LINA) - Education Minister Etmonia Tarpeh has disclosed that the ministry is in the process of removing from its payroll unqualified teachers who illegally entered the classroom.

She said this was part of measures being taken by the Education Ministry to reform the country’s educational system.

Speaking Friday at the Communications Outreach Working Session at the Ministry of Information, Madam Tarpeh alleged that some County and District Education Officers employed their relatives who have no basic training in teaching.

The Education Minister also said the ministry is regularly building the capacity of primary and secondary school teachers through training to enable them adequately perform their duties.

Madam Tarpeh said the Education Ministry has now recruited County and District Education Officers who are Masters and Bachelor of Arts degree holders in public schools across the country.

She said the Masters holders are overseeing secondary schools while those with Bachelor of Arts degrees steer the affairs of primary schools.

The Education Ministry boss further disclosed that they are working with universities that are training teachers in Liberia to improve the standard of their performance.

Meanwhile, Minister Tarpeh has disclosed that the ministry has introduced the teaching of the Constitution in Liberian schools.
