Student teachers have called upon the government to avail more resources for them to effectively execute their duties and responsibilities.
H-Metro spoke to some who were going back to school from industrial attachment who indicated that things have been tough in the field since the allowances they get are not commensurate with the expenses they incur.
One student teacher, Gamuchirai Maedzenge, a third-year student at Nyadire Teachers College said:
I am happy to go on attachment because things have been difficult at school.
There are shortages of resources and electricity and its limiting us as students because we cannot do our research on time.
There is also a shortage of food at school.
School fees are now expensive and we are failing to make ends meet because the allowance we get on attachment is not enough.
Meanwhile, another student teacher who has been on attachment bemoaned the inadequacy of the allowance which student teachers get saying it was limiting them.
The teacher also called upon the government to upgrade education needs in some schools to make learning environments conducive.
