Grand Bassa County Electoral District #2 is said to be lacking sufficient classroom teachers to provide quality education for school-going children in that part of the county.
Making the disclosure Tuesday to Dakpannah 24, the Education Officer of the county, Nathaniel Cisco, said the district is one of the largest areas, with a little over 107 teachers.
According to Cisco, of the 107 teachers, the majority of them have been pensioned, while some are recent high school graduates who he said to have not gone under intensive teacher training.
He mentioned that there are about 27 functional government schools in the district that need more teachers to adequately teach the school-going children, stressing that the shortage of teachers in the district is a serious problem hampering the educational sector of the county.
The County Education Officer further disclosed that classes are currently being held under trees, while kids are seen seated on the floor at the New Buchanan Public School in pursuit of quality education in the county.
At the same time, Nathaniel Cisco is calling on the county local authorities and the Bassa Legislative Caucus to make a quick intervention to help the kids.
