There is no doubt of the need for investment and innovation in Liberia’s education system. The decades of civil war have left 42% of the children out of school. Literacy in Liberia is at 57%. Although 1.5 million children are in school and classrooms overcrowded, many kids cannot read by the time they reach secondary level. Only 20% of children enrolled in primary school complete secondary school.
The government is determine to work with education providers with proven models of school management, teacher support, and increasing learning outcomes to transform free public primary and nursery schools.
