An education project, “Constitution for All” has been launched in the country with about 40,000 students expected to benefit from Phase-I of the project.
The project was launched on Tuesday, July 21, by the Executive Director of the People Action Network, Amb. Rufus Neufville.
Speaking to scores of senior students during the launch of the project at the Well Harriston High School on Mechlin Street in Monrovia, Amb. Neufville said: “Our being here today is based on the request of the thousands of Liberians students across the country who told us that they are learning all of the subjects in Liberian schools but they do not have in-depth understanding about the Liberian laws and constitution”,
Amb. Neufville said there is a need for schools in the country to go beyond the teaching of primary subjects and introduce the teaching of the Liberian constitution, adding the knowing the constitution of Liberia is a fundamental right of every Liberian citizen.
According to Amb. Neufville, his organization will be providing 40,000 copies of the Liberian constitution for the first phase which will commence from the Well Harriston High School.
