Eleven volunteer teachers at the Madina Public School in Garwula District, Grand Cape Mount County, have threatened to lay down their chalks due to the failure of the Ministry of Education to put them on payroll.
This was disclosed by the Principal of the school, Ernest A.Faika, in an interview with the Liberia News Agency at his Madina office on Thursday.
He said the teachers have been in the classroom for between seven to eight years without pay.
He quoted them as saying they were tired of rendering sacrificial services.
Faika told LINA that promises made to the teachers that their names would be placed on payroll have proved fruitless.
Principal Faika explained that the school has a teaching staff of 22, and that out of that number eleven are on the payroll while the other eleven are rendering voluntary services.
He commended the citizens of Madina Township for providing some form of compensation to the eleven volunteer teachers monthly.
