NAQEZ Doubts Reopening Of Schools In 2020 For Non-Exam Classes


National Action for Quality Education in Zambia ( NAQEZ) Executive Director
Aaron Chansa has said he doubts the possibility of school reopening for non-examination classes due to inadequate equipment that can allow more learners while observing COVID-19 health guidelines. In a statement issued today, Mr Chansa stated that many schools lacked adequate desks that could also allow them to practice social distancing. “With a crisis of desks in most schools in the Country, National Action for Quality Education in Zambia ( NAQEZ) strongly doubts the possibility of reopening schools for non-examination classes this year. Our current assessment is that very few schools in Zambia would be in a position to accommodate more learners apart from examination classes.This is simply because most schools, especially those in rural areas, have a critical shortage of desks. In some cases , pupils are even sitting on the floor whilst learning,” Mr Chansa stated.
