Improve teachers' welfare

EDITOR — I appeal to the minister of Primary and Secondary Education Lazarus Dokora to look into the welfare of teachers as a matter of urgency.

This affects the teachers’ performance as well as other sectors of the economy. Teachers are not equipped for inclusive education and that’s where our greatest challenge is.

Learning difficulties are not being addressed at all.

I sincerely hope that you have taken into consideration the class size for these models.

The pupil-teacher ratio of 50:1 will kill the objectives of the model if it is not addressed.

Adequate resource material, continual teacher upgrade and better pay, will go a long way in making this model work.

There is a shortage of classrooms qualified teachers nationwide.

Government should stop implementing policies without taking proper consideration or input from various stakeholders in the education sector. This is what happened with the Land Reform programme.

Zanu (PF) must start thinking of ways to revive our education system and the economy because the latter has the power to adversely affect the former.

It now seems as if it is just a delaying tactic to keep our children in schools for many years while they ponder a solution to address unemployment.

I hope the resources for funding such a bloated education programme are there.

What is wrong with the current education system which has produced the likes of Dokora himself who did not even attend grade 0, A ,B or whatever?

truly Mr Editor...Staff Monitoring by IMF must-be looked at...50:1 will stay according to the freeze to recruit more teachers...yes the minister responsible must look at the welfare of the teacher and equip them with the neccesary needs..not to fold his hands
