Liberia: Report - 70 Percent Public Primary Schools Lack Toilet

The 2013 report of the Education Ministry shows that 70 percent of public primary schools in Liberia lack access to toilet facilities.

The report said inadequate access to toilet facilities can lead to illness of students, underperformance and non-attendance in schools.

The report pointed out that greater access to toilet facilities provides an environment more conducive to learning, particularly for female students.

The report indicated that public primary schools with access to toilet facilities range from 51.9 percent in Montserrado to 9.9 percent in Rivercess counties.

The report revealed that only Montserrado County has the highest number of public primary schools with access to toilet facilities.
