MONROVIA, LIBERIA–Rampaging students of the Monrovia Consolidated School System (MCSS) took to the streets in demand of pay for their teachers.

At early morning of Tuesday, October 15, 2019 the scores of students converged at the front of the Foreign Ministry to draw Government’s attention to their concern.

The protesting students told ELBC that their action is predicated upon their teachers’ refusal to go to classes due to salary arrears owed them by Government.

The MCSS Superintendent, Benjamin Jacobs, said: “The Administration is doing everything possible to ensure that the students leave the streets and return to classes”.

Mr. Jacobs confirmed that teachers of the System are being paid to encourage them return to classes in the soonest possible time.

The students from the MCSS said that their teachers’ refusal to go to classes was affecting their learning process, as the teachers are yet to administer the First period test in the school system.

There are about 15,000 teachers in the employ of the MCSS.
