Ricks Institute was one of the 35 schools with "“100 percent pass rate.” In order words, every student from these 35 schools who sat the WAEC for 2016 made a successful pass." They should have had a Ricks grad proofread.

The Liberian Observer had that as its first story, only following later with the more dismal (but expected--ebola closed schools for quite a while) "Worst Results since 2013" story (35% passed, 48% failed, 17% were caught cheating).

One bright spot from the earlier story is that not only did the usual schools do well in preparing their students, so did some remote schools new to the list. So somebody is learning how to do the job right.
