Government Reviewing New Curriculum, Suspends Tasks, Continuous Assessment For O Level, A Level Exam Classes

The government through the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education has acquiesced to demands from parents and stakeholders by suspending continuous assessment for this year’s Ordinary and Advanced Level classes. The tasks and continuous assessment were introduced as part of the new curriculum by the much-maligned former Minister of Primary and Secondary Education Lazarus Dokora.  However, teachers and parents complained about the way the new curriculum had been implemented saying that there was inadequate consultation as well as poor planning.

However, when Dokora was fired by President Emmerson Mnangagwa, his replacement Professor Paul Mavima initially said that the New Curriculum was not going anywhere.  He later conceded that the government was going to review the new curriculum in order to address the concerns of parents and teachers such as the contentious issues of tasks.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more details come in.

  1. well i think the new curriculum is whack because instead of us focusing on our books, our reading time is being taken up by tasks and projects because they require a lot of research. most of the students have been failing ever since this new curriculum was put forward because we are receiving a lot of pressure. i used to dislike school ut now i simpy hate it to the max

  2. the new curriculum is just a waste of time and it lacks credibility,students will just copy from others,copy from friends,relatives,it must be removed becoz it lack reliability
