Mzimba is worst primary school exams performer

Mzimba has slipped to the worst performer in primary school leaving certificate examination (PSLCE) for the past three years, slipping from the best performer, a situation which has worried education officials in the district.

This has prompted the education officials to devise ways on how best to reverse the worrisome situation by, among other things, introducing awards to best teacher, best headmaster, best school, among others.

Mzimba south district education manager Fanwell Chiwowa said there was need to improve the situation before the situation gets out of hand further.

“This is why we invited stakeholders in education to this award giving ceremony. This has given us a chance to meet and brainstorm on how best to improve the situation,” he said.

He said teachers, head teachers, parents and school committees have agreed to monitor the situation very closely and ensure that both learners and teachers are working hard to produce good and desirable primary school leaving certificate examination results.

“We will do all we can to improve the situation, it is not too late,” said Chiwowa.

One teacher scooped two awards, as the best teacher and best headmaster and urged his colleagues to work extra hard to produce good results.

That’s what happens when the country is developing,most people are overtaken by events,lot’s of entertainment,prostitution,very small girls underaged are going out with big men who visit Mzimba,lot’s of money dilutes importance of education.Very worrisome indeed and this is the right step to award teachers so that they can raise their upstairs for education development.It’s not only Mzimba’this is a universal problem.It’s not quota as per others say,it’s about changing attitude towards education.

The message is clear, no matter the fight, they will end at their parents homes: quarter System has discouraged many in the north, this could be one of those discouraged. Ministry of Education and the signatures of quarter system are happy to hear about Mzimba being the worst. or; It could be another ploy to discourage them more. We are dealing with young minds. Mzimba could be passing a season, dawn will come.

You have heard for yourself. Worst the whole Malawi. The guys are dropping school for early marriage and end up trotting to SA. There are boys as young as 15 married to two women.
