PEO calls for special education in Milenge to cater for physically challenged children

Rural News PEO calls for special education in Milenge to cater for physically challenged...

Luapula Province Education Officer Langson Chibuye has implored the Milenge Secondary School management to create a special education unit at the institution.

Mr Chibuye said there is urgent need to make room for the physically challenged at the school especially that it is the biggest learning institution in the district.

ZANIS reports that Mr Chibuye said this during a meeting with education staff in the area which was held at Milenge Secondary School.

He said the provincial administration will deploy personnel as soon as management confirms that they have created the unit.

Mr Chibuye noted that the physically challenged persons face many challenges in rural areas in acquiring education, adding that they should not be left behind.

And Milenge District Commissioner Kunda Chibilo has called on teachers to mentor their pupils and encourage them to progress to tertiary education.

Mr Chibilo noted that the progression rates in the district are low and there is need to change the mindsets of the locals.

He further added that most pupils either drop out of school or end up in early marriages which is detrimental to the development of the area.

  1. You have my support Mr Chibuye. What is this MP of Milenge doing about it, The MP has failed look at the road from Kasanka Turnoff to Milenge District offices, it is in bad shape and the MP is getting salary for nothing By now this MP could have started demanding for the Government to construct a road from Chembe District through Lwela- Milambo to Milenge Boma going all the way to Chief Sokontwe – Chishikishi area and to Samfwa. This is how that area can be developed. The Youth in Milenge have no hope and end up Children marring each other and producing other Children..

  2. The call by the PEC -Luapula province is a very well thought by a concerned educationist. As a matter of fact, it should be government policy on the inclusiveness of people living with disabilities when it come to education. Education is the only equiliser. I farther implore government to put in place a policy framework which will exempt payment of school fees to all disabled people attending government schools up to university level. Some Parents as well as guardians are not eager to sponsor disabled children because they rarely think that they can make it in life.
