“We want to make sure that whatever measures we are taking, have taken or intend to take, are measures that you believe are for your specific community. We want to make sure that whatever we do, is informed by your needs, and what would be responsive to your needs.”


The exercise is one of many scheduled to take place over the next two weeks as the Ministry of Education engages all stakeholders in Education to assess where the Ministry is in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The exercise will reflect on all that has happened over the last two and a half years of school closure, which include, measures to ensure school continuity, plans to transform education as stated in the Ministry’s Sector Plan and relevant policy documents.
