Human Rights Commission expresses disappointment

By Ferricks Dainsee

(lbsonline/Liberia)-The Independent National Human Rights Commission (INHRC) has expressed serious disappointment over deplorable condition of schools operating in Bomi County.

The Commissioner of the Independent National Human Rights Commission, James Torh, made the statement when he spoke to mylbsonline in Tubmanburg, the county’s provincial capital.

The interview followed the INCHR and UNMIL Human Rights Section’s joint inspection of school and health facilities in the county.

Commissioner Torh said: “Most of these facilities visited are in deplorable condition, especially occasioned by the acute limited seating capacity.”

“Students at the H.Q. Taylor Jr. High School and C.H. Dewey High School were seen using cement blocks as seats, while Bomi County Education Officer and teachers complained of the lack of stationary, including chalks and dusters,” he said.

”Some of the class rooms have no doors and ceilings. It is unacceptable, because the situation is a human rights violation.”

Meanwhile, Commissioner Torh has welcomed President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf’s recent statement, emphasizing the need to overhaul the entire educational system of Liberia and the country’s Education Ministry to make them more vibrant.
