Gov’t Employs 170 More Trained
Public Schools’ Teachers

About 170 teachers who graduated from several teachers’ training institutions across Liberia have been employed by the Government of Liberia through the Ministry of Education.
Since their graduation, those employed have been serving as classroom teachers in government-run primary and secondary schools across the county for several years.
The Human Resource Officer at the Education Ministry offices in Nimba County, Samuel Dolo, who confirmed the employment, most of those teachers have been providing voluntary services in the classrooms for many years before being selected for employment by the Ministry.
He told the media that the selection was done based on “credentials and competence” and through an “impartial and thorough” vetting process carried out by professionals.
Dolo stated among many things that the government in 2020 embarked on recruiting qualified young Liberian teachers to replace overstayed and retired teachers who were honorably retired by the Education Ministry.
He said the employment of the 170 teachers is a boost, not only to their families, but to the country in general and Nimba County in particular.
“Teachers bring to the system wealth of experience coupled with professionalism which, I believe, will greatly impact the lives of the school- going population of the county,” Dolo stated.
Some of the teachers employed have volunteered for over ten years, according to the MoE Human Resource person and Dolo believes that the move by the government to include the 170 teachers into its employ will serve as motivation to them (teachers) and others planning to venture into the teaching profession.
The Nimba MoE official then encouraged the new employees to see their inclusion into the system as a challenge to do more for their names and their country by proving what they have learned through their actions in the classrooms.
Dolo at the same time disclosed that the government, through the Ministry of Education, remains committed to employing more teachers, but did not state when another batch of teachers would be employed.
