The Bulawayo Provincial Education office has revealed that only 38 percent of parent and guardians have paid for their children’s first term school fees and levies in Bulawayo. Bulawayo Provincial Education Director Mrs. Olicah Kaira said this situation was hindering the implementation of the new education curriculum.
We are implementing a new curriculum and we need a lot of financial resources, we need qualified teachers and teacher capacity development is part of the pillars of the new curriculum,
Without money we cannot even build new infrastructure. Infrastructural development is a pillar that contributes towards successful implementation of the curriculum.
We need money for textbooks, we need to buy smartphones, tablets, we have a project that we are doing with higher life where children must work on their tablets even at home, but we can’t do such things if we don’t have the funds
