  4. This is a joke. A conference should be the last stages of the transformation process. The stages should have been like this:
    1. Identify what areas of education are irrelevant, areas to be transformed: curriculum? staffing? academic? skills?student enrolment?etc
    2. Research on the identified areas and topics, involve all stakeholders: students at all levels, rural and urban, teachers at all levels, rural and urban, learning institutions at all levels, private sector job markets, government, random education systems in selected countries.
    3. call for conference to to discuss the research findings
    4. select the most relevant and propose to government.
    5. implement the transformation

  5. She is a dictator. She vowed this morning to exclude student bodies who don’t support her or she doesn’t like. ZANUSU is target.

  6. Mrs Luo,

    Can you pleas devise and include an environmental awareness subject for all primary schools.
    At least 90% of people in Zambia have gone to primary school. If students are taught waste disposal, keeping our water resources clean and looking after our natural environment, the very next year you will notice improved levels of cleanliness in our communities and cities.

    From primary schools students should be taught to be patriotic and proud and defensive of Zambia’s natural environment. Trees and minerals and other natural resources must be protected from a young age.

    Zambia’s natural wealth belongs to Zambians , for the benefit of Zambians. No one else will look after our country if we do not teach our people to do so.
