    Kikwete stresses quality secondary education

    PRESIDENT Jakaya Kikwete on Wednesday launched the second phase of Secondary Education Development Programme (SEDP II) with a promise to focus on quality.

    President Kikwete said top on his agenda was to ensure education to be delivered in secondary school is of good quality.

    He said in the first phase of SEDP, the country increased enrolment in primary and secondary schools, where it managed to attain the set targets.

    "We have done well in ensuring many children receive universal access to education and gender parity, our main focus now will be to improve and ensure education given out to our children is of the best quality," he said.

    Improved infrastructure, teaching facilities, teachers' houses especially in rural areas, better emoluments, creating good teaching environment and investing in science education are among President Kikwete's agenda in the education sector.

    The president was flanked by the ministers responsible for the Education and Vocational Training, Dr Shukuru Kawambwa, the Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, Regional Administration and Local Government, Mr George Mkuchika and Representatives of World Bank and Donor Partners during the launch of SEPD II (2020 - 2015).

    The World Bank has given the government US 150m dollars loan for SEDP II and already US 59m dollars have been disbursed.

    The World Bank is also funding construction and renovations of 500 schools in the country.

    The president noted that the success of SEDP I enabled Tanzania to receive an award for an excellent work in education sector at the Millennium Development Goals Summit in New York, last year.

    "We cannot speak of the success of SEPD I without recognising the major contribution made by the public in building schools and teachers' houses that has placed Tanzania among few countries recognised in the world for the good work in education," the president noted.

    He said the government was prepared financially to ensure the success of the programme, noting that secondary education was important in creating a middle class that will be catalyst for rapid development in the country.

    "Investing in education is very important and the government is prepared financially to ensure the programme's success. A nation without people with a good secondary education will lag behind in development," President Kikwete explained.

    The president called on the public to ignore critics downplaying achievements in the education sector, noting that those people do not have the interest of the nation at heart.

    Commenting on the achievement attained in SEDP I, Dr Kawambwa noted the increase of secondary schools to 3,397 by June 2010 from 824 in 2004.

    Students enrolled in secondary school also increased from about 264,888 in 2004 to more than 1,400,000 in 2010.

    The minister noted that building 12,000 teachers' houses with a capacity of housing two families each house is among priorities when implementing the second phase of the programme.

    "In three years from now, the high quality of education given from our schools will be noted," he explained.

    Mr Mkuchika promised that his office will ensure all funds allocated for the programme were spent on the intended purpose.

    "The Prime Minister's Office will supervise and follow up on the money allocated for the programme and ensure all funds are utilised appropriately," he said.
