CEO Calls For More High Schools in Rivercess

By Johnson Liway, Grand Bassa County Correspondent

CESTOS CITY, April 7 (LINA) - Rivercess County Education Officer (CEO), Gabriel M. Dozzen, has called on the county’s Legislative Caucus and local authorities to lobby for additional high schools to meet the demand of the increasing student population.

He told the Liberia News Agency in an interview in Cestos City at the weekend that Cestos High School, the only high school in the county, cannot accommodate the number of students completing junior high school in the county each year.

CEO Dozzen said the construction of more high schools in the county will enable students pursue high school education in other parts of the county.

Dozzen disclosed that 23,000 students are enrolled in the Rivercess School System, which consisted of 116 schools in 2013.

He said there are 600 teachers throughout the county, and that there are 23 elementary and junior high schools in Cestos City, 47 in Morweh District, 18 in Yarnee District, and 28 in Central “C.”

He said during the biometric identification card exercise in Cestos City, some instructors assigned in other districts, who could not afford the L$3,000 transportation fare to come to the city to obtain their ID cards, were deleted from the Ministry of Education payroll.

Dozzen said UNICEF and other philanthropic organizations usually supply textbooks to the schools in the county through the Ministry of Education.
