Prof Mkenda made the statement today January 13, 2022 in Dodoma during a handover ceremony between him and the former Minister of Education, Prof Joyce Ndalichako who has been moved to the Ministry of State in the Prime Minister’s Office, Labour, Employment, Youth and Disabled.
He said, there is an ongoing task in the ministry which involves reviewing the curriculum and the society will be informed about what goes on. He added that the Ministry’s doors are open for experts to give their opinions that will help to have quality education.
“Prof Ndalichako said there was a time they had no sleep due to holding discussions about the country’s education and if they will need expert opinion from outside the ministry. We have a lot of professionals and some are retired. We will call and have a talk with them so that when we are done, we have a common agenda”.
“For stance, there is an issue that our education produces people who cannot be employed, something that we must discuss here but the process has already started. Discussions are ongoing and I know that people’s comments are being gathered and I know how they are not getting employed. It is possible that the economy is also contributing to this,” said Prof Mkenda.
