The Ministry of Education (MOE) has disclosed that the number of trained active teachers across the country has increased to 46,000.

Making the disclosure Thursday, January 12, 2032, at the Ministry of Information’s regular press briefing, Education Minister Ansu Sonii said key impacts have been made in the education system since the beginning of President George Manneh Weah’s administration.

Minister Sonii said President Weah has made tremendous efforts that have greatly impacted Liberia’s educational system.

According to him, the sector has grown to 46,000 teachers in both private, and public universities around the country with an enrollment of 1.5 million students yearly.

“It is education that makes the world go well; there is no discipline that is superior to education, for there is no discipline that comes into existence without education.”

Giving more progress in the sector, the President of the University of Liberia (UL), Dr. Julius S. Nelson, said from 2018 to present, the free tuition enrollment at UL is going smoothly, something only made possible by President Weah.

According to him, it is in President Weah’s administration that the UL has carried out its major renovation which the Government of Liberia provided US$ 1 million for the Capitol Hill campus, and they look forward to the second US$ 1 million for the Fendell campus renovation.

The school has introduced new bachelor programs, including computer information services, environmental science, architectural, and public health programs.

Dr. Nelson also disclosed that in 2022, the university will have signed an agreement with NaFAA and approved the curriculum for the fisheries and aquaculture program.

He informed journalists that on January 25, 2023, the university will launch a department of fisheries as a major industry in Liberia.

The UL President said currently, there are about 90 of their colleagues outside of Liberia studying to come back and serve the university.
