Malawi Poor Infrastructure Hindering Public School Students From Accessing University Education

LILONGWE (Linda Likomwa, Mana)— Minister of Education, Science and Technology, Eunice Kazembe said poor infrastructures in Public Secondary Schools are hindering students to go to universities.

Kazembe said this on Monday in Parliament when a Member of Parliament for Lilongwe City Centre, Shadreck Jonas wanted to know why most students in the country’s universities are from private secondary schools.

“The infrastructures in our public secondary schools are poor and that leads to poor delivery of quality education that made them fail to compete with students from private secondary schools,” Kazembe said.

Kazembe added, “Most private schools in the country have good infrastructures and that contribute to quality delivery of education since the students have a good learning environment.”

Most Members of Parliament have been seen in the House requesting for construction of additional school blocks, libraries and laboratories to make sure that students have all the required learning materials.

The Minister always assured the nation that Government is working on that to make sure the country has quality education standard.

 

Public Schools in the country especially Community Day Secondary Schools (CDSS) have no enough infrastructures like libraries and laboratories which make it difficult for students to study and do experiments in other subjects.

One of the teachers at CDSS in Lilongwe who speak on anonymity said it becomes difficult for the teacher to teach other subjects without practical.

“Subjects like physical science, biology, agriculture and others they need experiments and most of our CDSS they don’t have laboratories and those that have they are not fully equipped with materials needed so this make the students to score low grades on those subject,” the teacher said.

The teacher, however, said they always give them theory part of it but experiments are needed for better understanding and in preparation for the student’s practical examination during Malawi School Certificate of Examination (MSCE).

He added that lack of resources in the country’s education system hinders much on the delivery of quality and standard education.

60 per cent of the country’s university students are from private secondary schools and 40 per cent are from public secondary schools.
