Private lessons under the spotlight

Primary and Secondary Education Minister Cain Mathema, his Public Service counterpart Professor Paul Mavima and Finance and Economic Development Minister Professor Mthuli Ncube will be leading the Government delegation at the meeting in Harare.

As they seek to address teachers’ concerns, the Government is aware of illegal private lessons being conducted by striking teachers, and this will also be on the agenda.

Minister Mathema yesterday confirmed the meeting with the main item of addressing teachers’ concerns, but noted: “As Government, we are, however, aware that some teachers are not reporting for duty and instead they are conducting private lessons charging parents US$5 per subject. It is illegal and as we seek to address teachers’ concerns, they must also desist from such activities.

“In that meeting, we will also discuss the issue of teachers who are doing these private lessons. Parents need to be careful of such activities and what I can say is that, Government is addressing it.

The meeting is part of Government efforts to address the welfare of its workers.
