Why this petition matters
The 30 of December 2022, the Minister of Education Arts and Culture, Mrs Anna Nghipondoka, did a Media Briefing before the 2022 NSSCO & NSSCAS results were released. She was quoted saying,"I would like to reiterate my serious concern about these results. While cognisant of the fact that Covid-19 left a mark on the mastery of all competencies by our pupils, […] I also have clear evidence from the analysis of these results that effective and efficient quality teaching and learning have not been taking place in many of our schools,” The Namibian quoted her.
Yes, it may be true but playing the blame game is not going to change the hundreds and thousands of results that the incompetency of everyone involved in our education system has seen coming but done nothing about. The fact is most of the learners who could not go to university will spend more than what their parents earn to better their marks for them to be accepted at an higher learning institution. And the most famous institution that learners go and better their resultat does not even produce satisfactory results.
It is time we demand solutions not blame the people we put in power for the failure rate. Let them debate the results in parliament, for we gave them the power to solve our societal problems, now they must solve this one.
-that his petition be debated in parliament and sent to the relevant parliamentary committee for the investigation into the policies governing the education system.
-that the report on the findings be shared we the Namibian citizens at large and explained in the all Namibian language.
-that everyone that is in involved in the education system be subjected to scrutiny and fired, if necessary.
Report on the parliamentary committee findings should be provided by the end of the school calendar, if not we shall march to the ministry of education demand answers and the Minister of Education Arts and Culture to be fired/resign effective of that day.
