Government commended for introducing computer literacy in the primary school curriculum.

Government has been commended for introducing computer literacy in the primary school curriculum.
Speaking to Breeze News, some parents have embraced the development as a step in the right direction which will yield positive results in the education sector.
The Parents have however, cautioned teachers to ensure that the computers are not used for personal use but strictly for purposes of teachings.
Meanwhile, CSPR, Civil Society for Poverty Reduction, Provincial Coordinator, Maxson Nkhoma, says that this is a clear indication that Government is moving in tandem with other countries in the SADC Region.
Mr. Nkhoma however, says that he is aware that the policy just like any other newly created government policies may take time to be fully realized.
He has urged government to guard against being derailed in realizing this policy by ensuring adequate and timely support to all primary schools.
Mr. Nkhoma observed that there have been some fears that computer subject examinations which pupils will write at the end of the year may disadvantage pupils from rural areas due to non-availability of computers and power to operate the computers.
Mr. Nkhoma called upon government to scale up recruitment of teachers with information technology professional qualification to meet the demand.
