Mtakataka community secondary closed indefinitely

Barely three weeks in the first term of the 2015/16 school calendar Mtakataka Community Day Secondary School in Dedza has been closed due to disagreement between school management and students.

Nyasa Times understands that the students want the school’s head teacher transferred on an allegation that he is facilitating the transfer of four teachers from the school.

It is reported that some students staged a protest on Monday that ended up in detaining the Head teacher in his own house, having no classes on the day, and a prompt visit by officials from the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology.

There was however a stalemate on the matter as the Ministry official failed to resolve the disagreement between the Head teacher and the students.

The students did however not damage school property as most students have in similar disagreements in the country.

The school has been closed indefinitely and Central West Education Division Manager Joseph Nkhata has lamented over the conduct of the students saying it is uncalled for.

This comes at a time when the government has increased fees and scape off examinations at standard eight and form four which requires students to put in more effort in education in readiness of form 4 examinations.

There is no immediate reaction from parents and education activists.

    Let’s not just judge the students as always wrong. Yes Head is educated but some heads are there because of promotion and drug not because of academic papers. Such heads have inferiority complex and as a result they indeed facilitates transfers of highly educated teachers in the name of “removing opposition”

    So form four examinations have been scraped off.

  11. Dido says:

    The concerned parent, check in the latest Divisional posting instructions and also visit the history of the Headteacher. Just for your information, the Head and the deputy once worked together somewhere. The Head facilitated his posting and even recomended him to be her Deputy. So u see its a long story. Don’t comment zinthu zoti simukuzidziwa inu a parent.

  12. Dido says:

    Iwe Josephy Nkhata, ukunama nena choona. Vuto ndi iwe. Ma Headteachers akuzuza aphunzitsi under your backing. Iwe ndiwe Kamuzu mu CWED muno. Umalandira ziphuphu ngati mfumu kuchokera kwa ma Headteachers. Zimenezi zikupangitsa ma Head kuzunza ndi kunyoza aphunzitsi kuwaopseza kuti achotsedwa pa sukulu. So Nkhata iwe, nawenso akufufuze pamenepa. 4 tchrs, imenei ndi normal kapena nanunso mwayamba yanu Reform?

    kodi aChilima salary ili kuti? Paja mumati mphunzitsi azilandira mwachangu

  14. Concerned parent says:

    There is need to publisize the real information at hand. Udindo sitichita kutuma ana kuti atipezere popanga ma demonstrations. There are no four teachers that have moved out of the school and the head teachers are never in the posting selection committee. Conerned member. Mtakataka

    Some head teachers are like thorns in flesh!

  16. Wozitsata says:

    I always feel sorry for CDSS students when they engage in these senseless acts. Being at a CDSS already puts them at a great disadvantage over their colleagues who are getting far better quality education than themselves and yet they choose to do things which will only affect their already inferior education?
