The Ministry of Education’s poorly-coordinated decisions to reopen schools across the country has led to dismal attendance at many schools.
Although schools in Ganta have received supplies to reopen on the date specified by the government, classrooms remained empty as parents decided against sending their kids to school.
As the government’s mandate for the reopening of schools takes effect today, education authorities in Lofa say they will not resume classes in the absence of preventive measures and funds for public schools
Two weeks ago, the Liberian government announced that schools will reopen on Feb. 16. Although the government has promised to provide necessary materials to resume regular academic work, it is yet to meet up with its commitment to schools in the Zorzor district.
Six months after the closure of schools, the Liberian government has finally announced the reopening of schools. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf made the pronouncement at a news conference in Monrovia. In July of 2014 when the deadly Ebola virus was at its highest rate of infection, President Sirleaf instituted a State of Emergency thus bringing to an abrupt end educational and other social activities in the Country.

How well do Liberian universities’ websites serve these parties and how do the websites compare with each other?
