Teachers Shortage Hurting Vahun Central High

Professor Ansu D. Sonii, Sr., Minister of Education

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.
