The lack of adequate teachers is impeding academic activities at the Vahun Central High School in Vahun District, Lofa County.
Making the disclosure recently, Principal Sellu M. Ensah said the school is the only high school in the district with a population of about 500 students, but lacks sufficient teachers to cater for the growing number of students at the school.
Ensah told the Liberia News Agency that the school has only four employed and six volunteer teachers, including administrative staff who at times help to teach the students.
He said one of the six unemployed teachers has left the school, while the other five have threatened to abandon their classes, because they are not on salary.
He pointed out that the situation at the Vahun Central High School is dire and needs urgent attention, if the institution is to be fully functional during 2018-2019 academic year.
Ensah disclosed that since the reopening of the institution for 2018/2019 academic year, no proper lessons are being taught as a result of the lack of adequate teaching staff, thereby impeding learning activities at the school.
