UN report extols Rwanda on education scheme
The Global Education Monitoring report has hailed Rwanda for commendable pupil enrolment in primary and secondary school levels.
The report released Wednesday in Kigali, London, Medellin and Jakarta also shows that Rwanda has reduced its computer ratio in primary and secondary schools as part of the One Laptop per Child project.
Rwanda has achieved access rate at 98 per cent. “Rwanda’s online supply chain management system enables schools to order books they want from publishers, and government to monitor whether the books have been delivered,” the report said.
The report points to goal 4 of the Sustainable Development Goals about ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and learning opportunities for all.
Commenting on the report, Rwanda’s Education minister Papias Musafiri said for post Millennium Development Goals the Rwandan government will strive to maintain equity, quality and inclusive education.
There is a need to impart the right skills and attitudes and a culture of innovation and creativity among young people, he said.
It is not a question of knowing something but how do you translate the acquired knowledge into what is needed at the market, he said.
