-60 Students Undergo Probe For Forgery

By Esau J. Farr

Sixty students of the government-run Harbel Multilateral High School in Margibi County are currently undergoing investigation about circumstances leading to how they allegedly entered the school illegally.

According to a local journalist quoting school authorities, the sixty students, all of whom came from the Firestone School System of the 10th Grade Class of 2017/2018 reportedly forged the signatures of authorities of the school and prepared their own stamp with the inscription, “Promoted To” and fooled authorities of the Harbel Multilateral High School for entry.

The students are all reported to have failed in the Firestone School System last academic year, but refused to repeat the 10th Grade and decided to seek save haven at the Harbel Multilateral High School.

The secret leaked out after the mentioned group of students refused to pay certain fees announced by authorities of the Harbel Public School, something that led to others digging the background of the students and how they fraudulently entered their new school.

The situation comes at the time students of the Harbel Public School are taking their first marking period test for Academic Year 2018/2019.

The local journalist told the Super Morning Show (SMS) on ELBC that authorities of the Harbel Public School are relaxing their stance on the students until after their test for a proper probe into their alleged report of a scheme to rob the school by producing false documents and that anyone caught liable for the crime of forgery will be dealt with in line with the Education Laws of Liberia.

The Firestone School System is one of the outstanding school systems in Liberia that has and continues to produce excellent students in Liberia.

Recent results from the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) showed that the Firestone School System is one of the high schools that have been producing Divisions one and two students about three years ago now.

But with the latest report capturing 60 students of allegedly running away from the school because they were labeled failed and with no trace of them as to whether the students repeated the 10th Grade or promoted themselves, one may come to wonder how well the issue of coordination between and amongst school authorities is working aimed at discouraging polluting the education system with students jumping from one class or school without proper documents from past school to support their claims.

Investigation will continue on this story.
