Wisdom from the Wise One

CSEC Statement on the Recent Education Policy Reforms by the Government of Malawi

Education Minister1.0.      Introduction

Civil Society Education Coalition (CSEC) which is a coalition of 84 local and international organizations working in the education sector has keenly followed the reforms that are taking place in the education sector, and in between issued a stern warning to government about lack of thorough preparedness on the said reforms. Despite this warning, government vehemently assured Malawians that everything was in place and that their implementation will be at a good note. Evidently against this assurance, it is crystal clear that nothing much than talking has been done to make the implementation of these reforms work and deliver their intentions. Our conscious opinion is that government might be solving few problems while at the same time creating bigger problems that unfortunately, and if not well managed, can paralyze the entire education system. Hence, CSEC wishes to outline the implications of the reforms on the broader economic environment and their consequential effects on access and quality education.
