Min­istry should in­ter­vene at Goko High

The Manica Post - - Comment & Feedback -

EDI­TOR — We, the par­ents of Goko High School, are be­ing short-changed by both the Min­istry of Pri­mary and Sec­ondary Ed­u­ca­tion and the school it­self. Our plight is that there is a ge­og­ra­phy teacher (name with­held) who ap­pears at school for less than two months per term. Most of her time is spend at­tend­ing some so-called AIDS work­shops fa­cil­i­tated by a lo­cal NGO.

We won­der how and when she teaches our chil­dren and why the school au­thor­i­ties, the min­istry and Pub­lic Ser­vice Com­mis­sion are mum about this is­sue which has been re­cur­ring for the past ten years. The par­ents used to urge the school head (name with­held) to make teach­ers al­ter­nate for these so called work­shops so that our kids ac­quire value for money. Few months ago we heard she was beaten up by cer­tain women over in­fi­delity al­le­ga­tions. The in­ci­dent oc­curred in front of our chil­dren. We take this as ut­ter emo­tional abuse of our chil­dren. Why can’t she go and work for these ‘NGOs? School head are you be­ing paid by these men to zip your mouth. Please the re­spon­si­ble min­istries take ac­tion be­fore we, the par­ents, decide oth­er­wise. Con­cerned Par­ents
