The Civil Society Education Coalition (CSEC), has asked the ministry of education to consider revamping the education system so that it focuses on skills development other than knowledge banking, as it has been the case before.
This was said on Wednesday during a post UNGA dialogue meeting on transformative education with government officials and members of parliament.
The meeting was conducted to take stock of President Lazarus Chakwera’s five point commitments which he made prior to the 2022 United Nations General Assembly that entails the direction or desired education that is going to transform the country.
Speaking at the function CSEC programmes officer Kisa Kumwenda said as CSOs they are very much interested to see the actualization of commitments such as increasing allocation of finances in the education system coming to fruition.
Kumwenda said they want to hold government to account on various commitments, ensuring that the system is strengthened, supervision and monitoring and evaluation of such interventions to register meaningful progress.
