Poor infrastructure at Chideza Primary School worries parents

Poor infrastructure at Chideza Primary School in Chipangali Constituency has worried parents in the area.

Speaking on behalf of other parents, Cryson Tonga told Breeze News that since 1998, the school has experienced shortage of teachers due to lack of infrastructure at the school.

Mr. Tonga, who expressed deep disappointment, alleged that government has denied the school developmental support, despite the community making some initiatives that have seen the school run until now.

He explained that a school which has grades 1 to 7 has only 3 qualified teachers, a situation which he says has compromised the quality of education being offered to the pupils.

Mr Tonga further indicated that to support the few teachers at the school, the parents are forced to hire untrained teachers and contribute money towards their salaries.

He has charged that some parents have decided not to take their children to the school because they cannot afford to make the contributions required.

Mr Tonga has asked government to send officers to the school so that they assess the situation as soon as possible.

Provincial Education Officer, Allan Lingambe could not be reached for comment by News time.

However, recently Dr. Lingambe indicated that some of the recently recruited teachers would be sent to schools in dire need of trained teachers.
