MOE launches strategic plan
Mansa, May 25, 2013 – ZANIS – The ministry of Education has called for an improved approach to the education system in the country.
Education deputy minister Professor Gillies Wilombe made the call during the launch of strategic plan for the ministry in Mansa,Luapula Province.
He said an educated human resource was key to national development and education should be from nursery to tertiary education delivered by qualified teachers at all the levels.
Mr Willombe said teachers should play a pivotal role in the development of a critical educated Zambian cadre that should drive national development.
He condemned the practice of early marriages saying it should be fought because it was retrogressive and a hindrance to national development.
Professor Willombe called for efficiency in the education sector through strategic planning adding that civil servants should support the government implement its programmes meant for national development.
Provincial education officer Jennifer Banda said the five year strategic plan will improve learner performance.
She said it was the responsibility of the teachers to ensure success in the implementation of the strategic plan in the province.
