UNESCO report commends Rwanda on education programmes
 

KIGALI, (Xinhua) -- The Global Education Monitoring report has hailed Rwanda for commendable pupil enrollment in primary and secondary school levels.

The report released Tuesday in Kigali, London, Medellin and Jakarta also shows that Rwanda has reduced its pupil/computer ratio in primary and secondary schools as part of the One Laptop per Child project.

Rwanda has achieved access rate at 98 percent.

“Rwanda’s online supply chain management system enables schools to order books they want from publishers, and government to monitor whether the books have been delivered,” the report said.

The report points to goal 4 of the Sustainable Development Goals about ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and learning opportunities for all.

Commenting on the report, Rwanda’s Education minister Papias Musafiri said for post Millennium Development Goals his government will strive to maintain equity, quality and inclusive education.

There is a need to impart the right skills and attitudes and a culture of innovation and creativity among young people, he said.

It is not a question of knowing something but how do you translate the acquired knowledge into what is needed at the market, he said.

Lamin Manneh, the UN resident coordinator, commended Rwanda for its education efforts.

“Rwanda has the highest enrollment rate in Africa, they are not only concerned with quantity, quality also matters,” he said.

The report however, warns that education might not move the world forward unless participation rates dramatically improve and learning becomes a lifelong pursuit to fully embrace sustainable development.
