Desist From Pushing Under Aged Children Into Schools Too Early - VP Howard-Taylor Warns Featured


The debate whether children under five should enter school or be properly taken care of by their mothers has been elevated to another level with Vice President Jewel- Howard Taylor recommending the reintroduction of the old days to resurface in Liberia.

Though her early years and time may not be as applicable as to the 21st century era now, Madam Taylor believes children under five in Liberia need much more attention and care from their mothers than to be in school.

Speaking to journalist on Monday, November 18, 2019, VP Howard-Taylor said it is about time for Liberia to go back to the old days and desist from pushing under aged children into schools too early.

According to her, it also has some economic burdens on the parents and can as well expose the kids who are normally vulnerable between the ages of 1-5 years  to unhealthy and unsafe environment.

Reflecting on her personal life, she told reporters that she did not go to school until she was five years because her mother had to take care of her during that period noting that she also learned a lot from her mother as such wants similar thing to re-surfaced.

She explained and justified further that the kids can be left at home with a nurse who will take good care of them while their mothers and parents go to work or business places instead of sending them to school where they will be at risk to contractible and preventable disease due to the over crowding of the school, mainly day care among others.

Commenting on mal-nutrition, the Liberian VP pointed out that the region is now heavily concerned about it and is working around the clock to see how best locally produced fruits and vegetables can be used to improve nutrition in children especially those under five years.  

According to her, school feeding program is a test to local farmers because they are now challenged to produce nutritional food like beans and many others which will further help keep the children healthy and strong.

As a result of mal nutrition so many children especially those under age died while some of them are usually exposed to diseases and many others, this she noted needs to be addressed in the region.

“It is a security risk for the region as such, we need to protect our younger generation who are our future leaders,” she added.

Madam Howard Taylor indicated that it is now time to protect the younger ones to ensure the children are brought up properly for the benefit of the continent.

According to the UNICEF data monitoring of situation of children Worldwide, more than 90 per cent of primary school-age children have been enrolled in school.

Major progress has been made toward realizing the Millennium Development Goal of achieving universal primary education.

However, there is still a long way to go before this vision will be achieved in some regions.

While education systems globally have enrolled more students, some regions and countries face strong demographic growth. Without the resources to ensure that all of these children enroll in school, this leads to increases in the number of out-of-school children.

The challenge is most acute in sub-Saharan Africa, where the net enrollment rate stood at 79 per cent in 2018.

Although the number of out-of-school children of primary school age declined globally from 100 million to 59 million between 2000 and 2018, progress has stalled since 2007. In addition, the number of out-of-school children has increased by 1.7 million since 2014.
