The Zambia National Education Coalition (ZANEC) has urged Government to expeditiously replace teachers who will leave their work stations through resignation or promotion to management positions.

ZANEC Executive Director George Hamusunga says this will enable the recruitment of an additional 8,663 teachers based on the current attrition rate.

And commenting on the 2023 national budget Mr. Hamusunga has welcomed the increase in the allocation to the education sector from 10.4% in 2022 to 13.9% in 2023.

He says his organisation also commends Government’s plan to employ 4,500 teachers next year as this will contribute towards the provision of quality education in public schools.

He also says ZANEC is happy with the re-introduction of meal allowances for students who are on the loan scheme and the subsequent increase in the allocation towards the loan fund.

He also says he is happy that Government is planning to complete 115 schools that have been in the construction phase for some time and will be building 120 new secondary schools with the help of the World Bank.

“The K40 million allocated towards the inspection of schools should also be commended as this will enhance quality service delivery in the education sector,” he said.
