Liberia’s Ministry of Education has warned schools’ administrators for what it calls “exploiting extra fees from 12th graders” in the name of their processing fee for WASSCE, thus announcing the country’s return to the old academic calendar beginning next school year.

The Education Ministry through its Deputy Minister for Administration, Latim Da-Thong has vowed to take stringent action against any school that will charge above L$150 for processing fee from WASSCE or WAEC students next academic year.

Making the disclosure Sunday on state radio ELBC, Minister Da-Thong reminded the public that President George Weah has long time committed his government’s efforts to paying the exams’ fess for all 12th graders across the country.

The Deputy Education boss further stressed that with the policy set by the MOE for each public exam student to pay L$150 for processing fee, no school for any reason is authorized to charge students above said money.

Meanwhile, Deputy Minister Latim Da-Thong has disclosed the MOE is returning to the old academic calendar, adding that regurgitation will begin in August and end on September 2, 2022.

According to him, school will officially open September 6, 2022, thereby admonishing public, private and faith based schools’ administrators to work with the Ministry collaboratively.
