Bong Students Want Education Laws Implemented

first_imgMr. Sheriff responds to the residents’ petition. -Present position statement to county authoritiesResidents of Kokoya, Panta-Kpaii, Gbarnga 1 and 11 educational districts in collaboration with a pro-democracy civil society organization, the Community Development Research Agency (CODRA), on Friday February 22, 2019, petitioned the county leadership to improve education in those areas.CODRA Executive Director, Lassana Dukuly, said the assessment of public schools in Bong County affecting those districts was the result of different information gathered by USAID through the GeoPoll services and education surpassed the research as priority for the residents.Dukuly said the research established that there was a disconnect between teachers and students as it relates to classroom attendance and learning relevance.He said the study was carried out in 40 public schools in four of the eight education districts in the county. The study established that 27 of the 40 public schools have functional parent-teacher-associations (PTAs) and that, across the 40 schools, teachers leave the classroom before 11:00 a.m., leaving As the result, students are left roaming around.“Our survey established also that there are 371 teachers in the schools assessed with 251 of them government-employed, while the 120 are said to be ‘volunteer teachers’. And there is an enormity of what is happening at the various schools” Mr. Dukuly said.Student Doris Dolo reads the petition on behalf of her colleagues.In a well prepared statement read on behalf of the residents by student Doris Dolo of the Nathaniel Varney Massaquoi High School in Gbarnga, the residents have observed over the years the rapid decline of education in the county, which include the lacked of desks, limited trained teachers, poor infrastructures, inadequate classrooms and offices for teachers.In their petition statement, the residents also said that the lack of libraries and laboratories as well as text books in most public schools in the county is impeding the learning environment of the students.Most of the public schools in the county, if not all, do not have toilet facilities, no hand pump and no supervision and monitoring and evaluation. As the result, teachers are slow to teach, the residents’ petition said.“Bad supervision and no monitoring and evaluation mechanisms are the major challenges that characterize the Liberian educational sector” they said.They furthered that in July, 2018, CODRA engaged educational stakeholders at the county and district level, and on the spot physical assessment of school facilities and engaged the PTAs aimed to identify and find solution to some of the challenges the schools are facing.The residents recalled that in 2017, a USAID funded project, Liberia Accountability Voice Initiative (LAVI), conducted a political and economic analysis of the educational system in the county, and identified issues such as poor teaching, and classroom learning relevant as root causes of problems in the educational sector.In their petition, they expressed the hope that their petition will stimulate the county leadership to mobilize all stakeholders at the county level to work with national government to break with the past, and ensure that the annual national budget reflects the implementation of Liberia Reform Education Act of 2011.The petitioners recommended that the government fully implement the 2011 Education Reform Act chapter 9.1, which obligates national government as a primary financier of all public schools in the country; that 60% of the signatories’ fees of all agreements should go directly toward education; that the government should increase the education budget to 20% as enshrined in the Dakar framework of 2014, of which Liberia is signatory. The Dakar framework requires all member states to allocate a minimum of 20% of its national annual budget to education, but Liberia is yet to implement the agreement.Jesse F. Kollie, PTA chairman of the John Flomo Bakalu Junior High School, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, called on education authorities to pay attention to the petition to improve learning facilities in the county.Bong County Assistant Superintendent, Anthony Boakai Sheriff, who received the petition on behalf of the county leadership, lauded CODRA, and the petitioners for highlighting loopholes in the county’s education system. Sheriff then promised to deliver the petition to the education authorities.According to Dukuly, the County Education Officer, Armah Varflee, as well as the District Education Officers, were invited, but none of them showed up or even sent a proxy.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Financial problems blamed for family murders-suicide

first_imgThe commotion attracted Alvarado, who said his cousin called him over. Using a flashlight, Alvarado also looked through the window and saw the girl in her bed, with blood around her head, he said. He and two others broke through the front door. In addition to the girl in an upstairs bedroom, Alvarado said he found a man dead on a sofa, his head leaning back. “I just ran downstairs,” he said. “I didn’t want to look no more.” The bodies of the girl and her mother were both found in their beds, and they might have been sleeping when they were shot, Peavy said. The grandfather’s body was found on a chair in the living room, with a self-inflicted gunshot wound and a handgun in his hand, Peavy said. On Wednesday, police tape was strung across the front door of the home, and mangled blinds were visible through the window. Neighbors said the family, who lived at River Ranch Townhomes, had received eviction notices, and the grandfather was upset about it. “All indications are that he was going through some difficult times financially, and that might have caused the whole thing,” Peavy said. Neighbors spoke of the family on Wednesday, of little Angelica, whom they said was an active girl, with shoulder-length dark-blond hair. Michele Perez, 34, who lives nearby, said she often saw the girl and her grandfather together. “They were always happy, they were always out by the pool, he was always taking her swimming and jumping rope around here,” she said. Some neighbors said they heard what sounded like gunshots at 4:30 a.m. Tuesday. Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of two to three gunshots called in by a resident in the area, said Lt. Brenda Cambra, a spokeswoman for the sheriff’s Santa Clarita station. The deputies arrived 10 minutes later, but didn’t see or hear anything more, or locate the source of the gunshots, Cambra said. Sheriff’s deputies came back to the town home Tuesday night, after neighbors discovered the bodies. “The lady next door said they’re not going to knock down the door, they’re going to come by and patrol the area, which makes perfect sense,” said Rhonda Robb, 27, a receptionist who just moved into the neighborhood Tuesday with her boyfriend, Alvarado. River Ranch has gated entrances and maintenance employees who drive around in golf carts. There is a pool near the leasing office, and the wheat-colored town homes have balconies and face neatly clipped lawns. Finding his neighbors’ bodies was the worst thing he has ever seen, Alvarado said. Robb said she could not sleep Tuesday night because of the grisly discovery almost next door from where she just moved in. “I just hope the best for whatever family they do have left,” she said.

You’re all set! “It’s unbelievable,” a grim-faced Alvarado, 22, said Wednesday morning. “I just couldn’t believe it, seeing a little girl like that.” Authorities determined that Richard Boyd Burton, 52, shot his daughter, Crystal Marie Burton, 24, and his granddaughter, Angelica, said Craig Harvey, a spokesman for the county Coroner’s Office. Burton then turned the gun on himself, Harvey said. The bodies were found about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at the town home on Annes Circle Drive, just outside Santa Clarita. Angelica’s friends went to find her when she didn’t show up for a planned sleepover, said Capt. Ray Peavy of the sheriff’s Homicide Unit. Neighbors say the girls, accompanied by a mother, knocked on the window and threw rocks onto the balcony to try to get their friend’s attention, but got no response. CANYON COUNTRY – Four little girls searching for their friend tossed rocks at her balcony Tuesday night, then peeked through her bedroom window. What was soon discovered rocked the Santa Clarita Valley on Wednesday as details unfolded of the worst homicide in years in a town that touts its low crime rate. Using a flashlight, the youngsters saw their friend, 8-year-old Angelica Maldonado, lying motionless, blood around her head, and yelled out. Rudy Alvarado, a neighbor in this gated town-home complex in Canyon Country, forced his way inside, where he found Angelica dead. She was one of three people killed in what sheriff’s homicide detectives believe was a murder-suicide in a family facing financial troubles. last_img read more
