Teachers' Unions Blame "Structural And Ethical Decay" For Exam Leakages

Teachers’ unions have blamed the “structural and ethical decay” at the Zimbabwe Schools Examinations Council (ZIMSEC), and bad leadership in the government for recurring examination leakages.

Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) president Obert Masaraure said poor salaries are pushing ZIMSEC workers to engage in corrupt practices. Said Masaraure:

The ZIMSEC exam papers scandal is a reflection of the structural and ethical decay developing in our education system as a result of bad salaries and leadership in both government and the education sector.

Bad salaries breed desperate workers, who then resort to corruption as a way to survive.

Progressive Teachers Union (PTUZ) president, Takavafira Zhou, said ZIMSEC has lost all credibility. He said:

The credibility of the ZIMSEC board is now in tatters. There is a clear lack of professionalism.

We want all children to write examinations which haven’t been leaked so that we measure their real potential.

So far this year, two papers; Mathematics Paper 1 and English Paper 2 for Ordinary Level have leaked.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) revealed that so far eleven cases of exam leakages have been reported throughout the country. | NewZimbabwe.com
