The Ministry of Education has suspended three County Education Officers(CEO) for act incomparable with their status, a statement from the ministry said on Monday.
The suspension was a result of the special Task force set up by the ministry after it has gathered complaints from parents regarding un-prescribed fees from school administrators.
Those suspended are;G. Samuel K. S. Bondo of Montserrado County one, Moses S. Dologbay of Nimba County, and James G. Gaye of Margibi County, “for lack of oversight,” which led to disregard for policies within their controlled school system.
The release stated that their suspension takes effect as of Tuesday, October 15, 2019. “This action followed after an all-day deliberation held between the Senior Management Team (SMT), and Education Officers, who are the direct representatives of the minister within the counties.” It said.
“Henceforth, all education stakeholders, and the public are advised not to transact any matters relative to education management or operations at the county level with the suspended persons until further notice,” the release said.
The release further said, the decision is meant to gauge details of fees charged over the last two academic years, analyze, and report the variance to determine if an increment or fees charged commensurate with the service provided. TNR
