The Liberian government is close to signing an agreement with private, for-profit corporations to provide education.

 

The teachers’ union called on the government to consult with all concerned parties before agreeing to privatize and outsource the nation’s schools.

 

As we have seen in earlier communiques (see here and here), Western corporations are focused on Africa as fertile territory for low-cost, for-profit education, using ill-trained teachers who read from a script.
