Grades for Sale at UL?

first_imgBetter grades can get a student from one level to another in their academic sojourn.  These grades are currently rumored to be on sale at the state-run University of Liberia following the completion of a fragile semester in April.According to scores of UL students, who just completed their senior course in English, those who could not make the desired grades were asked to pay L$1,000 to “cross the bridge” from failure to passing. This amount being requested by unscrupulous instructors is being seen as too much by students.The English course— coded as Engl. 411— was taught in the seventh section on the schedule, and is reported to have recorded mass failure due to academic limitations of poorly prepared students.The affected students told the Daily Observer that the instructor gave an assignment to students as part of what will constitute their final grades in addition to the examination.The students, who asked for anonymity, said they failed to meet the required grade points and ended up failing.“Upon receiving our papers, one of our classmates told us not to search for the instructor on UL campus, but rather to go to the Stella Maris campus where he was eating.  When we got there, he gave each person an envelope for us to write our names with our identification number to put L$1,000 into.  When he took the money, he then returned the emptied envelope to the student and his/her ID is checked,” a student explained.“The money is too much for us at this time because some of us are not working to get money.  If it were L$500, it would be acceptable. But the L$1,000 is too much as we still have tests to do and the burden of transportation is still hanging over us,” another student said.While our reporter was on the Fendell Campus on April 4, students copying the class schedule for next semester were seen and heard checking names of instructors to sit under.Normally students look out for convenient days and times, but now they ask who the instructor is before choosing their section.Students were rejecting certain instructors attached to courses because of past encounters with them.When the Dean of the college was contacted via mobile phone, he said such an issue had been brought to his attention, and that he would conduct an investigation to ascertain the facts.In another instance, students who did beginner’s accounting said the instructor charged US$10 to “cross the bridge.”Coded as Acct. 003, the students who were in section 9 on the schedule said their instructor told them to pay the amount as a prerequisite to passing the course.“This is my third time doing this course under this same instructor, I still can’t pass.  Now that he has collected my US$10, I hope to see a passing grade and not an ‘F, NG’ or ‘I.’ If not, he will feel the weight,” one student threatened.At the “Brother and Sister Restaurant” where this instructor and his female friend were sitting on the main campus, we were asked by this woman to use our phone so she could give us the amount to be paid.  When my phone was given back to me with a figure on the screen, I was asked to pay L$500.  The woman threw my phone on the ground and it almost broke,” a student said.Amidst these instances at UL, affected students are regretting the absence of Dr. Wede Elliot-Brownell, who they say would not allow such activities to take place under her watch.According to them, under Dr. Brownell instructors were careful about what they did in class as they needed to protect their jobs. Dr. Brownell was constantly on their (the instructors) backs to ensure that no one takes money from students for grades.“These instructors were only advocating for the woman to leave the university so they could go about “business as usual.”  Since she is not here, they will continue giving tests with intention of failing people so they can extort money from us and build their houses,” a distressed female said.UL Relations Vice President, Dr. S. Momolu Getaweh, in response to a call from the Daily Observer, said such information was not available to him, but the Dean of Student Affairs would look into the issue.Efforts made to contact the Dean of Student Affairs, Dr. Julius S. Nelson, proved futile as his phone was switched off.Although Dr. Emmet A. Dennis’ Administration at the University of Liberia is strict in making sure that the problem is tackled, it is difficult to control as students themselves are willing to take part.In most instances they are the first through, their class leadership, to propose money collection to bribe an instructor. Many students do not attend classes or take lessons seriously; preferring to use money to buy grades instead.As a result of this issue plaguing the education system, instructors who teach and live by principles are often hated by students, who describe them as “harsh and uncompassionate.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

China’s High-Tech Boost to Liberian Education: the Schools Must Be Made Ready, Too

first_imgThe People’s Republic of China, through the United Nations Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (UNESCO), last week donated US$700,000 worth of information and technology equipment for use in Liberia’s three Rural Teacher Training Institutes.The benefitting institutions are the KRTTI in Kakata, Margibi County, ZRTTI in Zorzor, Lofa County, and WRTTI in Webbo, Maryland County.This is a significant contribution to teacher training in Liberia which immediately places a heavy responsibility on the government of Liberia (GOL) in respect to all its educational institutions, especially the elementary, junior high and high schools. What is the heavy responsibility?  Now that Liberian teachers are being trained in high-tech education, the GOL should immediately start providing its elementary, junior high and high schools with the same equipment, so that the students will become ready to receive effectively what their teachers have to offer.The point is that computer and high-tech education cannot be taught in a vacuum (an empty space).  As the teacher stands behind his or her computer imparting that knowledge to students, so must the students be behind their computers receiving the instruction.  This would be a very serious motivation for our students, which could at once accelerate their learning capacity because it would make learning far more interesting and challenging.We vividly recall that several years ago, around 2010-2011, when the Ministry of Education, under Minister Othello Gongar, launched the new Liberian Education Curriculum, it contained nothing about high-tech.  The Daily Observer immediately brought this important missing element to the attention of the Ministry, and in an editorial told Minister Gongar that there was no way Liberian education in the 21st century could be effective without high-tech facilitation.That was five years ago.  Today, even in or near the nation’s capital, Monrovia, many students are still sitting on the floor, or on broken concrete blocks.  Yesterday’s editorial in this newspaper referred to an identical situation in Schiefflin, Margibi County, very near Monrovia, where an unknown businessman came to the rescue of an elementary school where he found students seated either on the floor or on concrete blocks.   Out of his compassion, he showed up with 78 armchairs to help these impoverished students and their badly handicapped school.This leads us to wonder whether our suggestion that GOL equip all of its elementary and junior high schools  throughout the country with computers to bring them into the modern era is not too farfetched (unlikely, improbable), if GOL has difficulty providing as basic a thing as classroom chairs.And yet what can a newspaper do but remind the government of the challenges facing it in this modern era, especially in the education sector.  What the Chinese have done is constructively to help the GOL do what it must to strengthen the capacity of primary and secondary education.We hope that the new Education Minister, George Werner, is fully cognizant of the many challenges facing him as he attempts to clean up what President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf several years ago called the “mess” in Liberian Education.   Now the Chinese have upped the ante by introducing high-tech into the system, beginning first—and most appropriately so—with the teachers.   Once the teachers are equipped, for the first time, with this technology, it would be foolhardy for them to present it to their students in a purely theoretical fashion.  That would be counter-productive.  That is surely not the way to introduce modern technology.  The approach to teaching it must be hands-on and direct.Mr. Werner, if confirmed, will have to think seriously about how he can rais the funds to computerize Liberian primary and secondary classrooms, so that when the high-tech-savvy teachers arrive, they will find students   equally ready to receive the new instructions being offered.Minister Werner must first find high-tech professionals who can immediately scout all classrooms throughout the country and propose how they can be remodeled to accommodate high-tech instruction.   The Education Ministry would then have to liaise with the Liberia Telecommunications Corporation (LIBTELCO), the Liberia Telecommunications Authority (LTA) and the GOL as a whole toward equipping the schools for this revolutionary new methodology.           Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘9 Mercenaries to Beg for Clemency’

first_imgWeeks after the Supreme Court sentenced 9 of the 18 detainees charged with mercenarism to life imprisonment, (all of them, hailing from Grand Gedeh County), Cllr. Tiawan Gongloe, who served as their lead counsel, is rallying elders and chiefs of the county to mobilize their people to beg President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to grant them clemency.Cllr. Gongloe informed the Grand Gedeans at an appreciation program held on Sunday, October 23, at the St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church, on Lynch Street, in Monrovia that history has shown that President Sirleaf has granted clemency to people convicted of committing serious crimes in the country.“President Sirleaf granted clemency to 14 young citizens from River Gee County accused of murder which happened without the matter reaching the Supreme Court, because their elders and chiefs quickly mobilized their citizens and they immediately begged the president,” Gongloe informed his audience.The nine Grand Gedeans were among 18 other defendants arrested by state security in 2011 and 2012 during cross border fracas after a post electoral violence in the Ivory Coast between loyalists of that country’s ex-president Laurent Gbagbo and those of his successor Alassane Ouattara.Five of the 18 were acquitted during the trial at the lower court due to lack of evidence to link them to the crime.Encouraging the elders, when he and other lawyers who represented the detainees were appreciated by the people of Grand Gedeh for their legal services during the trial, Gongloe said he was prepared to personally join a campaign to beg the President.“Your case is different because it was the Supreme Court that decided the matter, but we can still use the political process to have the President pardon our children,” Cllr. Gongloe emphasized.It was attended by several prominent citizens of the county, including seasoned politician Gbai Gbala.Cllr. Gongloe, who hails from Nimba County, said “it can happen only with collective effort and beside that we cannot succeed to free our people from jail. I believe that the judicial process has taken its course; it is now for the political process to set them free.”According to Gongloe, the trial was the first of its kind he had ever witnessed in the country.“This is the first time for a country to use its legal process to prosecute its citizens based on an allegation from another country. If this was anything to go by, then our government has set a world record and they don’t need anything more than that,” Gongloe informed the elders and chiefs.“Our government was only trying to show Cote d’ Ivorie that they would compel its citizens to account for the crime they committed in that country, and they proved their case,” he said.Backing Cllr, Gongloe’s idea, Mr. Gbala and some of the elders in separate remarks applauded Gongloe and assured that they would do everything possible to mobilize their people to beg President Sirleaf to free their children.Informing the people about his effort to have the 13 free, Gongloe said “We performed to the best of our ability, but we don’t control over the trial process.“You do your best, but the jury and the judges also have their part to play. They are not free today, because the Supreme Court heard it differently,” Cllr. Gongloe told the audienceEvery December, President Sirleaf in grants clemency to select prison inmates.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Liverpool striker to follow Markovic to Fenerbahce?

first_img Divock Origi Fenerbahce are interested in signing Liverpool striker Divock Origi in January, according to reports in Turkey.The Yellow Canaries apparently tried to take the Belgian on loan during the summer before landing Lazar Markovic from the Merseysiders.However, the Turkish giants, who lost forwards Moussa Sow and Dirk Kuyt in the summer, have not given up hope of luring Origi to Istanbul and are readying a January bid, newspaper Fanatik is claiming.Liverpool signed Origi from Lille in July 2014 but immediately loaned him back to the French club for the whole of last season. He is back on Merseyside this season, but the 20-year-old has featured just twice for Brendan Rodgers’ team this season.And, with the likes of Christian Benteke, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings ahead of him in the striking pecking order, Rodgers could consider another loan deal. 1last_img read more

Facebook settles suit over texting

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN JOSE – Pressured by a lawsuit, Internet social network Facebook Inc. will adopt new measures to prevent its 58 million members from sending text messages to recycled cell phone numbers. The settlement was announced Tuesday by attorneys for an Indiana woman who claimed Palo Alto-based Facebook had been profiting from text messages sent by its members after the intended recipients had given up the phone numbers. The lawsuit filed by Lindsey Abrams of Patriot, Ind., said she received text messages with explicit comments and other upsetting content – and had to pay 10 cents each time. Facebook received a share of the fee, according to the complaint. According to the complaint, which Abrams’ lawyers had hoped would be certified as a class action, Abrams started getting the unsolicited messages shortly after she got a new mobile number from Verizon Communications Inc. in November 2006.

The two-month-old case highlighted the problems that can arise as Web sites extend their services to mobile handsets with phone numbers that have been reassigned after another customer’s service ended.

CREESLOUGH COMMUNITY GROUP BREATHS SIGH OF RELIEF AS COMMUNITY CASH PROMISED

first_imgA Donegal community group has had the threat of legal action dropped after the Government promised to pay money owed to the contractor who carried out works.Cllr Seamus O’DomhnaillThe Doe Community Association in Creeslough was facing legal action in the High Court for non-payment for works.The works in question were the Village enhancement of Creeslough village and a grant was sanctioned by the Miinister for environment to pay for the work. The Doe Community Association were simply the conduit by which the money was to be paid to the Contractor and DLDC were the lead partners for the project.It transpired in August 2012 that the Department of Environment came to the conclusion that the works should not be funded by the department as it was outside their remit, this after the same department had sanctioned the grant and work was almost completed.This left the Community group in a position where the contractor had to chase them up for the remainder of the payment because the department reneged on their previous sanction.Cllr Seamus O Domhnaill said the matter, which was first raised on Donegal Daily, has now been resolved. “To say that the community group felt distressed and angry is an understatement yet Minister Phil Hogan would not even agree to meet with the group or indeed engage with them.“The outstancding amount was in excess of €200 K and it appeared that this Government were happy to burden this amount onto a voluntary community group in Creeslough.Cllr. O’Domhnaill commented that “I had numerous meetings with the community group, DLDC who were partners as well as Donegal County Council who also played a role in the Village Enhancement process but it was virtually impossible to make progress when the Department refused to engage with the interested parties.“A last gasp Emergency meeting which I organised in mid December allowed the Group to plead and outline their difficulties once more to the County Manager as well as to Caoimhín Mac Aoidh of DLDC. “Further negotiations were the had between Donegal County Council and the Department and a resolution was finally arrived at yesterday afternoon.”The outstanding monies will now be paid out by the Department and it is hoped that the legal proceedings being brought by the contractor will be dropped as he will finally be paid. Cllr O Domhnaill said the Doe Community association are left distressed and extremely frustrated by this whole ordeal and the good work which was carried out through out this project have totally been overshadowed with the red tape and arrogance of the Department of the Environment.O’Domhnaill concluded by stating “I have been involved with this Community Association from the very first time the idea of Village enhancement was thought of for the Village, despite all of the difficulties I am pleased to have been able to actively work with the Group to solve this ridiculous situation that could have been solved by senior Government members at a much earlier stage.“I cannot commend and praise the Community Association enough in regards to their determination and hard work and I am personally delighted that this matter has been resolved. Thanks must also be paid to Seamus Neely & Mícheal O’Heanaigh of Donegal County Council who played an active role in the resolution as well as Caoimhin Mac Aoidh of DLDC.”CREESLOUGH COMMUNITY GROUP BREATHS SIGH OF RELIEF AS COMMUNITY CASH PROMISED was last modified: February 6th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Cllr Seamus O DomhnaillDoe Community Associationlast_img read more
