Sata was man of actions-DEBS
Samfya, November 11, ZANIS—Samfya District Education Board Secretary (DEBS) has described the late President Michael Sata as a man of actions who worked tirelessly to develop the country.
George Mwangula said the late President managed to upgrade primary schools into secondary schools in order to reduce on the long distance pupils used to cover to access education.
ZANIS reports that Mr. Mwangula said this in an interview today.
He said six primary schools in the district have been upgraded into secondary and 14 community schools into primary among other development projects he initiated in the education sector in the district.
Mr. Mwangula said the late President Sata introduced a syllabus for pre-school teachers called early childhood education so that qualified teachers can handle pre-school unlike in the past when unqualified persons used to teach pre-school children.
He said the late President Sata will also be remembered by the education fraternity for harmonizing salaries for teachers.
Mr. Mwangula has since called on whoever will be elected as the new president not to abandon the development projects that the late President started.
