KAKATA, MARGIBI COUNTY-President George Manneh Weah says the rapid growth and development of any nation depends on the provision of educational opportunities for its citizens.

President Weah said:” In the absence of the required formal education, the nation will experience stagnation in its growth and development.”

The Liberian Leader made the observation Monday, May 21, 2018 in a special statement at the formal opening of National Educational Summit taking place at the Booker Washington Institute (BWI) in Kakata, Margibi County.

He said:” As President, I am concern about the educational standard of the Country and I am urging stakeholders at this Summit to derive policies that will help improve the educational sector, including a new curriculum development for the nation.”

President Weah wants a curriculum that will focus on teaching Liberian students contemporary skills and making them capable with counterparts around the world.

He said his government will give every Liberian child the same opportunity to pursue their education regardless of where he or she comes from.

He urged Liberians to be honest and take on the challenge by engaging into activities that will improve their lives.
