MUTHARIKA WANTS EVERY CHILD TO HAVE ACCESS TO QUALITY EDUCATION

President Peter Mutharika on Tuesday during the launch of 250 secondary schools in Lilongwe said that he wants every Malawian child to have good and quality education after completing primary school.

In his speech at the ceremony, Mutharika said that Malawi will never be the same after the secondary schools are built.

“More secondary schools mean more students who finish primary school going to secondary school. “Our vision is that every child who finishes primary school must go to secondary school. I want every deserving Malawian child to go to secondary school,” Mutharika said.

Mutharika added that there can never be education without teachers who are the makers of all professions and called on the ministry to ensure teachers are well-trained, motivated and disciplined.

“Remember to recruit and train more teachers because these secondary schools will need well trained and more teachers. “Finally, focus on balancing knowledge education and skills education. We need more practical education,” he said.

On the schools, Mutharika thanked the United States Government for supporting the project saying the US is helping make Malawi an educated nation and that Malawi will never be the same after the secondary schools are built.

According to Minister of Education William Susuwele Banda, during the first phase of the project 30 schools will be constructed in the four cities of the country.

He said 13 schools will be built in Lilongwe, 9 in Blantyre four Mzuzu and another four in Zomba.
