Liberia to Close Schools July 31, 2015

The government of Liberia through Education Ministry has announced that schools in Liberia will close on July 31 2013.

The move, which has mixed public views, comes in barely two days after the plenary of the House of Representatives decision mandated Education Minister, George Werner to, within three days, make a public service announcement in both print and electronic media, reversing the previously proposed June 30 closure plan.
