In an effort to strengthen the education system, the Ministry of Education with funding from the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is implementing a 4-year project geared towards improving equitable access to early childhood education, teacher quality in early childhood education, primary education in targeted disadvantaged counties, and strengthen National School Accountability Systems.
The Project coordinator, Joe Gbasakollie is calling on all parents and guardians to give serious attention to their children by prioritizing Early Childhood Education (ECE). He added that an early start of school for kids provide opportunity to better foundation and advantage to quality growth and development.
On the other hand, the Ministry is encouraging ECE school administrators to be cognizant of teachers who are assigned at the ECE schools level to have the requisite training and knowledge as a way to standardize and make our education system competitive in West Africa.
In addition, the project coordinator disclosed that, there are approved plans to conduct School Grant Management training beginning June 29, 2019. The School Grant component of the project seeks to benefit about 40,000 students across Six counties ((Bomi, Rivercess, River Gee, Maryland, Grand Kru and Sinoe) by eliminating ECE fees and subsequently removing such key bottleneck in access to education. The training targets about 1,168 participants including County Education Officers, District Education Officers, Principals, Principal Teacher Association Chairpersons and County Professional staff.
The Ministry remains committed to providing quality and affordable education for all Liberian children.
