I really appreciate the effort of the guys today defensively and I think we got our teeth back on defense.”Rashawn McCarthy paced Kia with 16 points, four assists, two rebounds, and two blocks off the bench, but that couldn’t stop his side from dropping its 16th straight defeat dating back to the 2017 Commissioner’s Cup, the longest losing skid since Ginebra’s drought back in 1995.Eric Camson chimed in 15 markers, 11 coming in the extended garbage time in the payoff period, on top of six boards, while Ronald Tubid got 13 points on a 4-of-7 shooting from threes, on top of seven rebounds.The Scores:ADVERTISEMENT Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

MCSS Supt. ‘Fake’ Credentials Anger Teachers

admin no comments

first_imgMonrovia Consolidated School System (MCSS) Teachers have accused their Superintendent, Aldophus B. Jacobs, of holding ‘fake academic credentials,’ which they claim explains why the MCSS is mismanaged.The teachers are demanding Jacobs’ removal or else they will lay down their chalks until he is not only removed, but investigated for “academic fraud.” The MCSS secretary-general, Varmah B. Gray, in an interview over the weekend at the Daily Observer’s McDonald Street offices, vowed not to allow any of the teachers operate under Mr. Jacobs, “because he does not have the requisite academic qualifications to lead the MCSS.” According to Mr. Gray, contrary to Supt. Jacobs’ claim that he obtained a Bachelor of Education (B.ED), Educational Administration/Higher Teachers Certificate (Secondary) in 1995 from Milton Margai College of Education in Sierra Leone, that college does not offer a degree program, only a certificate.Mr. Gray further revealed that the Margai College did not host any graduation ceremony in 1995, but rather held its third combined biennial ceremony of presentation of certificates for graduates of the 1994/95 and 1995/96 academic years on Saturday, April 19, 1997. In the souvenir program, Mr. Jacobs graduated among the least of students in Division III category with a certificate in Economics and English as opposed to his claim of graduating with a B.ED.“In fact, up to 2000, the Milton Margai College of Education was never a degree-granting institution, but offered a certificate program as indicated by the souvenir program sheet,” he said.Gray alleges that in other documents, Mr. Jacobs lied under oath that in 1988 he graduated from the William V.S. Tubman High School. He said Jacobs was expelled from the school in 1986, and as such, his name is not recorded in the brochure of graduates in 1988. “Mr. Jacobs doesn’t hold a Bachelor’s degree as stated in his curriculum vitae. Most disappointingly, he boasted so much about having graduated from and earned a Masters Degree in 2009 from the St. Joseph University (USA), but that university does not have a website to ascertain Mr. Jacob’s claims,”  said Gray. He then noted as part of the credentials drama that one cannot obtain a Master’s Degree in the absence of a Bachelor’s Degree in any academic discipline. But when the Daily Observer contacted Mr. Jacobs on Wednesday, March 11, via mobile phone, he refuted the allegation of being in possession of fake academic credentials. According to Mr. Jacobs, the assertion by Mr. Gray was an age old fairy-tale which he described as mere noise without anything substantive. On the teachers’ threat to protest against his alleged fake credentials Mr. Jacobs threatened to purge anyone doing so from the system, saying that “those making the statement have nothing tangible.” He meanwhile, urged teachers to desist from any protest action and instead continue to work in peace, or choose to continue the loudest noise about someone else’s “credible academic credentials.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
