PPP Test Not Intended To Dismiss Teachers -NTAL Prexy Clarifies

By Calvin Brooks, LINA

MONROVIA, April 20 (LINA) -The President of the National Teachers Association of Liberia (NTAL), Ellen Varfley, has clarified that the Public, Private Partnership (PPP) test being administered to teachers is not intended to weed them out of the education system.

She said the PPP test is rather intended to know the status of teachers as it relates to subjects they teach, so that these teachers can be provided further training to enhance the standard of teaching in the country.



The NTAL official made the clarification Tuesday when teachers of the NTAL Margibi County branch staged a protest in front of the Capitol Building against the PPP Test which has been administered to public school teachers in other counties.

She indicated that it is unfortunate that some teachers are giving misleading information about the PPP test which is intended to strengthen the teaching profession to ensure quality education in the country.

In remarks during the protest, the President of the Margibi County branch of the NTAL, Milton Coleman, said the PPP test is not in the interest of Liberian teachers and that teachers from Margibi County will not sit the test which, he claimed, is intended to dismiss 6,000 teachers in the country.

Coleman pointed out that the Ministry of Education never consulted stakeholders in the education sector before introducing the PPP test and threatened that any attempt to dismiss teachers who refuse to take the test, will result in a nationwide strike.
