At least twenty-seven 12th graders of the Messiah Christian Academy High School in Ganta, Nimba County have been ordered not to wear neckties on campus after they performed poorly in the first marking period test.
The Principal of the Academy Mr. Clinton Gonquoi said administration took the decision to help clean up the mess in the education system. The Messiah Christian Academy has a total of 93 Twelfth graders, but 27 of them are found wanting, according to the administration.
Some of the students told this paper this was their first time writing tests under most of the instructors, adding that they were not used to the ways they drew test. The academy is one of the 11 high schools in Ganta that performed poorly in the 2016 WAEC exams.
Nimba County Education Officer Mr. Moses Dologbay has mandated all school administrators in the county to thoroughly evaluate their pupils before sending them for the 2016-2017 exams. CEO Dologbay said now was the time for both public and private schools to jointly work together to improve Liberia’s post-war education system.
