Private education stakeholders to be inspected, minister orders
The education ministry has been directed to make regular inspection of the education curriculum used in private schools in the country to see if they do conform to the standard set by the government. The Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa has issued a concern in Parliament when answering an impromptu question which was raised by Muheza legislator Adadi Rajab (CCM) in a special session last week in Dodoma. The legislator wanted to know steps taken so far by the government in controlling education which is being offered by private sector in the country to see if it conforms to the standard set by the government. Responding to such a question, Premier Majaliwa noted that, education inspectors from the ministry of education and vocational training must make regular inspection to see that the private sector follow the directives laid down by the government with a view to protect the national education curriculum whose focus is to prepare Tanzanian children into becoming good future leaders. He said the government will continue giving moral support to private education sector through its machineries as their role contributes to a high percentage rates to help increase quality education in the country.
