More work needed on Form One regis­tra­tion plat­form

The Manica Post - - Comment & Feedback -

ED­I­TOR — Gov­ern­ment and schools should be in har­mony in com­mu­ni­cat­ing a mes­sage to par­ents over use of the Form One elec­tronic ap­pli­ca­tion sys­tem.

Schools should clearly state all their re­quire­ments on the plat­form for par­ents in time so that they are able to meet their dead­lines.

Last time sev­eral schools ac­cepted ap­pli­ca­tions with­out in­di­cat­ing tu­ition fee pay­ment time-frames but took par­ents by sur­prise when school au­thor­i­ties gave them 24 hours to set­tle fees to se­cure their chil­dren’s places.

Most of the par­ents failed to raise money within the given time frame and many chil­dren ul­ti­mately lost out.

Fur­ther­more, the sys­tem is prob­lem­atic in that it only caters for those in town but de­prives those in the ru­ral ar­eas as they do not have in­ter­net con­nec­tiv­ity. Natasha Dh­li­wayo, Maron­dera.
