Zimbabwe Govt Calls For Summitt To Revamp Education Sector

Teachers and others concerned with schools in Zimbabwe met today with Education minister David Coltart to offer advice on how to overhaul the troubled sector.

Coltart said he called the so-called education summit to solicit the views of as many people as possible to help him formulate policies to present to the cabinet.

The meeting included representatives of the Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe, the Zimbabwe teachers association, the Zimbabwe Schools Examination Council, and other organizations with a stake in schools.

Minister Coltart tells Studio Seven reporter Patience Rusere that the main point to emerge from the session was that the schools must be kept open at all cost.
