The former standard bearer of the Union of Liberian Democrats (ULD) has strongly spoken on some gaps in the country’s Educational and Health sector and lined out how they can be solved.
In an interview with former Presidential Candidate, Jonathan A. Mason, said the deadly Ebola outbreak in the country has shown some weaknesses that the country has.
Mr. Mason said, “Both the country’s Health and Educational sectors need to be revised. From the point of how we treat our patients and how we attend to emergency cases in our country and to prepare for the future, government must construct hospitals in all of the counties with clinics in every district”.
He added that hospitals must be improved and there must be emergency sectors everywhere and if the government continues working with the CDCs, its citizens will be able to carry on research.
Mr. Mason asserted that doctors and nurses must be honored for sacrifices made during the Ebola crisis in the country.
He said the country’s educational system has been broken down because there are high schools that do not have laboratories and libraries for students to go and carry on research.
Mr. Mason stated that revising the country’s curriculum is a key factor to put the country in line with all of the other countries that are eligible for the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).
He concluded that parents must encourage their children in whatever they do because if the country does not have the labor force there will always be people coming from abroad to fill in those gaps.
