LISGIS official alarms over hike in tuitions

An official of Liberia Institute of Statistics and Geo-Information Services or LISGIS has called on the Ministry of Education and school administrators to halt arbitrary hikes in schools fees.

LISGIS Deputy Director General for Statistics, Alex Williams, said the hike in tuitions and fees every year is imposing economic hardship on parents and guidance in the country.

Mr. Williams stressed the need for the Ministry of Education or MOE, School Administrators and Parents to sit at a national conference to set standards for tuitions and fees.

He said many Liberian children are out of school as a result hike in tuitions and fees, something he said would create a bleak feature for Liberia.

Mr. Williams also challenged students to push themselves to achieve positive performance in their academic sojourn.

The Deputy LISGIS boss made the assertion at the induction of student leadership at St. Peters Lutheran High School in Sinkor on Friday.
