( Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has called on stakeholders in Liberia’s education sector to begin conducting roundtable consultation to revamp the sector.

President Johnson-Sirleaf said: “Recent results of the University of Liberia’s placement exams are worrisome.” She further pointed to the poor state of the education system.

According to the UL Administration, all 25-thousand persons who sat the UL entrance exams have failed, but said: “Some are being considered under condition for enrollment.”

Information Minister, Lewis Brown, quotes the Liberian Leader as expressing disappointment for such mass failure at the state run university.

He made the disclosure Thursday, August 22, 2013 at the Information Ministry’s regular press conference.

Minister Brown said: “The President wants Liberian educators get involved in a complete reform of the education sector, if the young generation must take the country’s leadership.”

The Liberian President has meanwhile pledged government’s commitment to exploring every avenue to supporting the education sector to avoid the recurrence of such poor academic performance.
