The Technical and Support Secretariat of the NCBBF says the decision to take the draft Charter to schools was made by the interim Education Minister. According to officials, they will only facilitate the workshops approved by the Ministry and the involvement of students is based on proposed electoral reforms.
One National News revealed last night that principals and head teachers have been tasked to accommodate awareness programs in schools. An Education Ministry directive means all teachers and students above the age 18 will attend the workshops.
The NCBBF secretariat today says there is a valid reason for these youths to be aware of what’s contained in the charter. We asked Dakuvula whether they are willing to take away crucial learning time for the sake of the draft document.
Principals will need to seek parental consent for students attending the workshops. Meanwhile, the Secretariat says detailed reports on the number of feedback forms are yet to be obtained from the Divisional Commissioners.
But this envelope sitting at the Secretariat office today, could suggest otherwise.
