Death knell for education



I AM a regular reader and sometime contributor to your excellent journal, but I must take you to task for not having given readers and the larger public a full preview of the disastrous Education

Amendment Bill, currently before the House.


If passed and signed into law by the president, Education minister Aeneas Chigwedere will go down in history as the man who singlehandedly destroyed the independent education system in this country.


State education is already a well-documented disaster and getting worse. Now, if he gets his way – and we parents simply cannot allow him to – private education, the flower of the system, will go the same way within the year.


Please, get on with it and present us with a full explanation of what is proposed and how it will affect the nation. It is a catastrophe about to happen and people need to know about it.


Peter Lovemore,

Harare.
