Protest On Carver Mission…As Students Setup Road Blocks
By Edwin G. Wandah
Serious crisis yesterday erupted at the Carver Mission High School along the Robertsfield Highway involving teachers and students on one hand and the outgoing Field Supervisor, Rev. Wion W. Wleh, including his associates. According to eye witness ses on the scene yesterday, the students gathered out of frustration at the Carver Mission Junction and set up road-blocks in protest to claim the attention of residents around the campus and District #6 Representative Edwin M. Snowe.
According to a lady, Musu Williams, the students who gathered at the school yesterday sang songs of protest, chanting slogans demanding the re-instatement of their Principal who they said was illegally dismissed by the Field Supervisor Rev. Wleh. According to the students, Rev. Wleh has since been replaced by a new Field Supervisor and his latest action was described as being illegal.
Although, normal academic activities at the Calver Mission School have come to a standstill the students seem relentless in their efforts to see their former boss out completely.
When the INQUIRER visited the scene of the protest, the campus appeared abandoned by the entire faculty, with teachers who have laid down their pieces of chalk quietly sitting and refusing to enter classes to teach.
According to Spokesman of the teachers, Gentry Gbablo, the teachers also are refusing to teach due to several lapses under the administration of the former Field Supervisor Rev. Wion W. Wleh.
According to Mr. Gbablo, as far as the Workers Union is concerned, Rev. Wion is no more in the active employ of the Institution. The Workers Union’s Spokesperson said documents in their possession show that Rev. Wion has since been replaced by a new Field Supervisor, one Rev. Daniel Tarpeh.
