Education Ministry Responds to Schools Struggling NEI Report

Ministry of Education | 2012-04-17 09:59:00

The Ministry of Education has taken note of the recent report in a Daily Newspaper, that the National Education Inspectorate (NEI), in its latest assessment of the performance standards of the country’s public schools, has indicated that the state of affairs at many primary and secondary schools leaves much to be desired. This is a challenge to the present administration that is being taken  seriously.

These reports were conducted during the period November 2010  to March 2011. The Education Ministry has been strident in its approach with the implementation of the recommendations documented in the National Education Inspectorate reports. This strategic technique is still in progress and some schools have already begun to implement the recommendations.

It is a mandatory policy direction at the Ministry of Education, for all schools to develop School Improvement Plans (SIP) in order to facilitate the continuous efficient operation of their institutions, so that all schools can achieve the desired ‘good ‘rating.

The Ministry affirms its position that no school is considered a “failure”. The Ministry of Education  will therefore continue to provide the support required as we work with the schools to bring them up to the requisite acceptable levels .
