The acting Chairperson of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC), Cllr Augustine Toe, has called for increased budgetary allotment to the education sector to adequately prepare Liberian youths for future challenges.
According to Cllr Toe, the assessment report in the education sector indicates that lack of integrity on the part of students and teachers was “extremely high” due to the low budgetary allotment to the sector.
The LACC official made the call Thursday when he launched an “Assessment Report of Corruption Risks in the Education Sector.”
The assessment was conducted in 10 schools as a pilot project in Montserrado County during academic years 2012 and 2013.
He said Liberia’s future will be in crisis if the problems in the education system is not addressed adequately by policy-makers.
