Mapping Corruption Risks in Liberia's Education Sector
The Government of Liberia (GOL) through the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) and the Ministry of Education (MOE), and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have been implementing a pilot project entitled, Mapping of Corruption Risks in the Education Sector in Liberia, to promote citizens oversight in the fight against corruption in the country. This study builds on anti-corruption awareness campaign conducted during the first phase by the LACC in eight public schools in five education districts within Montserrado County.
- On the positive side, the assessment team was able to gather a rich amount of empirical data in a reasonable time.
- This assessment generated the major lessons on six broad themes that can be drawn on the experience from the education sector that might have a wider, generic application. All of these issues have real implications for decentralization implementation in the education sector.
- This report therefore identifies the magnitude, challenges and several possible strategic and operational interventions for putting the Liberian education system on the right path, which will create the basis for a strong, vibrant, educated and healthy citizenry in the future.
