Dokora urges schools to adjust timetables to accommodate pupils' religions6 years ago
While addressing the Zimbabwe Religious Board in Chitungwiza on Saturday, Minister of Primary and Secondary Education Dr Lazarus Dokora said that teachers should adjust their timetables so that they accommodate pupils of other religions.
Dokora also said that the new constitution which came into force in 2013 does not state the national religion but entitles pupils to freedom of religion and conscience. Said Dokora:
What does this mean to my staff? In Chitungwiza there a lot of apostolic sects that attend church every Thursday evening together with their children and on Friday they go to school. It means children will attend school already tired because they never had rest the previous night. If it is those who go to church on Friday, some teachers celebrate because few pupils attend school. This is the day they decide to give others an exam and at the end of the term apostolic children are always at the bottom.Feedback
