Minister of Primary and Secondary Education Dr Lazarus Dokora said that Government has availed $9 million for the implementation of the new education curriculum and urged teachers to apply for funding for materials they need.
We’ve this $9 million which is available to buy materials for those grades that have entered phase two of implementation of the curriculum. Teachers must apply for the materials that they wish to have. We will hold them (teachers) accountable for the outcomes. If a teacher chooses a programme and you throw away their paper and substitute it with yours, we can’t hold them accountable. However, we will hold the school head accountable for the overall failure of his or her school. So, let’s all play our part because the money is there.
