Govt must ap­point de­greed school heads

Sunday News (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page -

MAY the Govern­ment speed­ily ap­point de­greed deputy heads and de­greed TICs in all pri­mary schools in the coun­try. Most schools in the coun­try lack th­ese qual­i­fied per­son­nel. Since 2000 heads have been ap­point­ing and rec­om­mend­ing their friends to the min­istry which has cre­ated confl ict in most pri­mary schools in the ru­ral ar­eas as well as the sec­ondary sec­tion.

Gone are the days of so­lic­it­ing the sup­port of par­ents for one to get a po­si­tion of man­age­ment in both sec­ondary and pri­mary sec­tions. Church-run schools have a ten­dency of ad­her­ing to this di­a­bolic pol­icy. We are tired of this.

May I has­ten to sug­gest that all teacher train­ing col­leges in Zim­babwe by 2030 of­fer de­grees to all teacher trainees. Teach­ers are the back­bone of the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor in Zim­babwe.
