The workshop aimed to demonstrate to people at all levels of the educational system from school teachers to central Ministry staff how education statistic can be used to support their work.
This included, but not limited to: explaining the differences between one school/district and another, which may be due to a number of factors including the background of the students, availability of facilities and teaching conditions.
Speaking during the closure, the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr. Zeogar Wilson, lauded UNESCO for the initiative and pledged government’s continued working relationship in achieving the desired goals.
Minister Wilson urged participants to use the acquired knowledge to impact others.
“I want to thank UNESCO as they are our partner, and they have been supportive to our program,” Minister Wilson added.
Marking remarks at the closure, Mr. Stevenson Seidi, Officer-In-Charge of UNESCO Office, stressed that statistics and data processing are very important if Liberia must improve its school system.
“Many times people talk things without proof, but it is you people, who will give the candid and empirical statistics that will show what our school system is all about,” he added.
