According to a release, the Cabinet was also briefed on the status of the partnership Schools of Liberia.

“The Partnership Schools will allow the Education Ministry, in collaboration with private school operators, target 185 schools in 13 counties across the country.”

It named some of the selected private school operators as BRAC, Bridge, Liberian Youth Network, More than Me, Omega, Rising, Stella Maris, and Street Child.
