Research key to ed­u­ca­tion suc­cess

Lesotho Times - - Feedback - Se­fora Moleleki.

THE Le­sotho Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion (LCE) must fo­cus on con­sol­i­dat­ing their diploma pro­grammes be­fore they can dare to think of of­fer­ing de­grees and post grad­u­ate stud­ies “Pro­fes­sion­al­ism is the buzz­word for new LCE boss” ( Le­sotho Times, 21 April 2016).

The is­sue of research, both at schools and at higher ed­u­ca­tion level, needs to pri­ori­tised. Our teach­ing and learn­ing en­deav­ours need to be research-based. The research ought to be un­der­taken in Le­sotho and not im­ported from some for­eign coun­try. Why do we still im­port text­books to teach such sub­jects as nat­u­ral sciences?

IN re­sponse to “Si­no­hy­dro re­wards stu­dents” ( Le­sotho Times, 21 April 2016), the cer­e­mony was a suc­cess in­deed. It mo­ti­vated all the stu­dents who were there. We thank Si­no­hy­dro Cor­po­ra­tion Le­sotho man­age­ment for the ef­forts taken to en­sure that the cer­e­mony a big suc­cess.
