Secondary school teachers in the country have a reason to smile following the distribution of the new secondary school curriculum textbooks in most parts of the country.
This follows complaints from Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) over the delay in the distribution of the textbooks arguing it was affecting delivery of quality education in the schools.
The union’s Secretary General Charles Kumchenga disclosed the development in a telephone interview with YFM.
“As TUM we are pleased to announce to the public that the long awaited new curriculum secondary school books have now been distributed in most parts of the country,” he said.
Kumchenga also attributed the delay in the distribution to poor standard education in the country.
“You could find a teacher being too inovatitive trying to teach a student what is included in the curriculum whilst he or she did not have the books just to match those who had the new books,” he added.
He concluded by appreciating government’s efforts through the ministry of education by making the process an achievement.
