The education sector is locked in a dilemma;continued closure of schools will severely compromise access to education and further harm learner wellbeing. Zimbabwe’s education is trapped in a multifaceted crisis caused by the COVID19 pandemic. Government has cut spending on education; parents are severely incapacitated to fund for education. Teachers are underpaid and face unprecedented repression when they demand better salaries. The speech focuses on strategies to resolve the crisis in education.
I am planning to present my speech in the following way:
My name is Moreblessing Nyambara, I am a secondary school teacher at Zimbiru secondary school in Mashonaland East Province, Zimbabwe, Africa. I am a holder of Master of science Degree in Education Mathematics and currently am studying a Master of Arts in Labour Policies and Globalisation at Kassel University in Germany.
