Over 50 students from about 4 Junior High Schools in Grand Gedeh County will not write this year’s public test, otherwise called the West Africa Examinations. The Caption: Ashton Youboty on the right is attributed to their failure to complete WAEC requirements.
According to our correspondent, the Principal of the Toe Memorial Institute in Toe Town, Edward P. Neewary, they were not told by the local official of the Ministry of Education that passport size photos, formed part of the WACE registration requirements abolished for two years now. Neewary, had expressed disappointment at the manner and form they were treated by the WACE administration.
However, the parents of the affected students have blamed the County Educational Supervisor (EOS) and others for not informing them properly during the admission of their children. The affected students threatened to protest to the Education Ministry authority through their County EOS for consideration.
