Supt. Vows To Make MCSS Schools Corruption Free


The head of the Monrovia Consolidated School system has vowed to introduce measures that will help combat the growing wave of corruption in the system. Mr. Augustine James Momo said rampant corruption by school administrators is grossly undermining government attempt to improve learning, and make education available to all. He emphasized that coordinated effort involving all well-meaning Liberians will help eliminate what he called barbaric practice that is forcing the country educational system to collapse. The Superintendent disclosed that money allotted to education often ends in the private coffers of some unscrupulous school authorities leaving teachers and other educational workers to go without salary for months. He stressed that his administration is strongly opposed to high level corruption, promising to expose anyone engaged in the practice irrespective of position or connections in government. Speaking to this paper at his twelfth street office in Sinkor, Monrovia, recently MCSS Boss reiterated his commitment to open and transparent administration where he claimed bribery and corruption will have no place. He indicated that transparency and accountability will be the hallmark of his activities as head of the Consolidated School System and will not renege in carrying the responsibility to the fullest.  The Superintendent also appealed to government for improvement in teacher’s welfare including salary increment accommodation, transportation and free medical care. He said the provision of these incentives will end bribery in schools, pave the way for academic excellence and make the teaching profession responsible and attractive. Describing MCSS Teachers as precious jewel, the Superintended promised to do everything within his power to address their plight and make life better for them.
