The Educational Law among other things provides the financing of children of the country education by the Liberian Government, private donations and contributions.
The law similarly provides in addition to the recurrent government budgetary appropriation for education, concession agreements for investment in the extractive, mineral industry and other non-renewable resource sector as well as in the agriculture sector and in major privatization contracts requires 60 percent of any signature fee to education.
Rep. Gray who appears very passionate about the educational sojourn of Liberian children has accordingly written the Lower House to mandate the government to promulgate the necessary guidelines and regulations to govern the administration of the program for the overall benefit of youths of the country.
He then reminded his colleagues that they as the people’s direct representatives are under obligation to seek a better future of Liberian children through the provision of quality and affordable education by taking the necessary action in ensuring that the House’s committee on Education uses its oversight on the Minister of Education to implement the National Students Loan Program.
Meanwhile, the Plenary has established a special committee chaired by Sinoe County Representative, Rep. Matthew Zaza, to peruse the document and report within two weeks.
