PPES MISSING IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Before announcing the school re-opening dates, it is paramount that the government, which is the largest stakeholder in all public schools and the education provider of last resort to every Zimbabwean, provides the necessary personal protective equipment for both learners and teachers. Schools disinfection, sanitizers, and class size reductions are all responsibilities of the government of Zimbabwe.
“ Our recommendation to officials from the ministry of primary and secondary education and the employer which is the public service commission is that , visits should not be mere visits to check preparedness, but those that ensure that PPEs are in delivered, disinfection has been done, Sanitizers are procured for many rural and satellite schools and that running water is available in each and every school in , without the above pre-requisites, it is surely dangerous to advocate for a quick return to normal schooling for a country that is experiencing its third wave, said educators speaking in an interview.
Educators across Zimbabwe have been unanimous in calling for the government of Zimbabwe through the Ministry of Primary and Secondary education and the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary education to step up efforts in providing PPEs in public schools and higher learning Institutions. However, it is sad that despite the surge in Covid -19 statistics some institutions having been operating without these basic necessities.
As at 8 July 2021, Zimbabwe recorded 2 156 new cases and 56 deaths according to the Zimbabwe Covid -19 Sit Report. Zimbabwe is also currently operating under level 4 Lock Down, which stipulates that there is a national curfew, from 6 pm in the evening until 6.a.m the following day.

Pass on to the teachers you know.👌

Dedicated to all the teachers

From A School Principal's speech at a graduation......

He said "The Doctor wants his child to become a doctor...
the Engineer wants his child to become an engineer...
The Businessman wants his ward to become CEO...
BUT a teacher also wants his child to become one of them, as well..!!
Nobody wants to become a teacher BY CHOICE"...
Very sad but that's the truth..!!

The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life.

One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He
argued, "What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best
option in life was to become only a teacher?"

To stress his point he said to another guest;
"You're a teacher, Mrs Sharma. Be honest. What do you make?"

Teacher Mrs Sharma, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness
replied, "You want to know what I make?
(She paused for a second, then began...)

"Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.

I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor winner.

I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents
can't make them sit for 5 min. without an I- Pod, Game Cube or movie
rental.

You want to know what I make?

(She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table)

I make kids wonder.

I make them question.

I make them apologize and mean it.

I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.

I teach them how to write and then I make them write.
Keyboarding isn't everything.

I make them read, read, read.

I make them show all their work in math.

They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.

I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to
know about India while preserving their unique cultural identity.

I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were
given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life.

(Mrs Sharma paused one last time and then continued.)

Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing
money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no
attention because they are ignorant. You want to know what I make?

I MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN ALL YOUR LIVES, EDUCATING KIDS AND PREPARING
THEM TO BECOME CEO's, AND DOCTORS AND ENGINEERS...

What do you make Mr. CEO? Only money?

His jaw dropped; he went silent.

THIS IS WORTH SENDING TO EVERY teacher you know .

Actually very worth sending again & again - especially to those from
other professions who think they are above teachers.

😃😃😃😃
Always Be Proud
Be A Teacher

EI AFRICA STATEMENT ON UNION RENEWAL

We, member organisations of Education International in Africa, meeting online during the EI Africa webinar on union renewal and development, held on 24th June 2021:

1. Noting that education unions in Africa work in challenging circumstances imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic; security crises deriving from internal conflicts or actions of terrorist insurgency groups; and environmental disasters and other humanitarian emergencies;
2. Seriously concerned about violations of human and trade union rights in many African countries and their impact on education unions, teachers and education support personnel in Africa;
3. Considering that education unions in Africa are often excluded from institutionalized and genuine social and policy dialogue by governments and employers;
4. Considering that many governments have ratified ILO Convention 98 on the Right to Organise and Collective Bargaining and Convention 87 on Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organise, but have not taken meaningful measures to implement these core Conventions;
5. Realising that the persistence of the health, security, environmental and other crises in Africa constitute a threat to advances achieved through the trade union movement;
6. Desirous to counter the negative impact of these challenges on education unions, their mobilisation, recruitment, advocacy, negotiation and other efforts;
7. Reiterating that it is imperative for education unions on the continent to address these challenges in order to restore the strength of the trade union movement in shaping a fair, inclusive and secure future for the teaching profession;
8. Conscious of the need to attract and retain early-stage teachers and education support personnel in our unions and to better organise and mobilise all our members;
9. Committed to union renewal, growth and development;

We Recommend:

10. That EI member unions in Africa implement the 8th World Congress Resolution on Union Renewal by ensuring the participation of under-represented groups, particularly young educators and women in union activities and structures;
11. That EI member organisations in Africa take concreate and creative measures to attract and recruit young educators into the teacher trade union movement;
12. That EI Africa consider establishing a Union Renewal Network to facilitate the sharing of experiences and strategies among member organisations;


We call upon African Governments:

13. To respect human and trade union rights, uphold international labour standards and fully implement ILO Conventions 98 and 87; and,
14. To take policy, legislative and practical measures to ensure genuine social dialogue in the education sector, including collective bargaining.

E.I. PRESS STATEMENT ON WORLD REFUGEE DAY
20 JUNE 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a damaging impact on refugee students, teachers and other education personnel. On World Refugee Day, education unions call on governments to guarantee inclusive education and decent living, learning, and working conditions for all migrants.
“Together we heal, learn and shine”
World Refugee Day 2021 focuses on the power of inclusion. This year’s theme for World Refugee Day is: “Together we heal, learn and shine”.
“The shared experience of COVID-19 has showed us that we only succeed if we stand together. We have all had to do our part to keep each other safe and despite the challenges, refugees and displaced people have stepped up. Given the chance, refugees will continue to contribute to a stronger, safer, and more vibrant world. This year, we call for greater inclusion of refugees in health systems, schools, and sport. Only by working together can we recover from the pandemic.”
- UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.
The right to education at every stage
According to the UNHCR’s Education Report 2020 published before the pandemic, Coming Together for Refugee Education, more than 1.8 million refugee children were out of school. That is equivalent to 48 per cent of all refugee children of school age.
The report highlights that the educational options for refugee children dramatically fell away after primary school; less than half of refugee children who started primary school made it to secondary school. Only 31 per cent of refugee children were enrolled at secondary level in 2019 - that was an increase of two points on the previous year, representing tens of thousands more children in school.
At primary level, gross enrolment of refugee children in school stood at 77 per cent, a level that has remained constant since 2019.
Three per cent of refugee youth were enrolled in courses at the level of higher education – including technical and vocational education and training as well as university courses. This has been the same percentage year after year.
For girls, the picture was already particularly stark before COVID-19. Almost all the gains made at secondary level in 2019 were in favour of boys: 36 per cent of refugee boys were enrolled in secondary education, compared to only 27 per cent of girls.
According to the report, while children in every country have struggled with the impact of COVID-19, refugee children have been particularly impacted. UN figures show that 1.6 billion learners across the world, including millions of refugees, have had their education disrupted.
“COVID-19 has demonstrated the importance of global solidarity. Refugee students, teachers and their families should be a priority as we rebuild. With our member organisations around the world, we urge governments to ensure quality and inclusive public education to refugees, to protect refugee educators and students, and to recognise the experience and qualifications of refugee teachers.”
- Education International’s General Secretary David Edwards
Education International: Protect migrants and implement international standards
Education International calls on governments to:
• Protect and respect the human rights of all refugees, including children, young people, teachers, researchers and education support personnel.
• Ensure equitable access to public education for all children and youth, including refugees.
• Implement the UN Global Compact on Refugees and promptly address any delay caused by the pandemic.
• Carry out equity audits within the education sector to systematically assess the impact of the school and education institution closures on the most vulnerable students, teachers, researchers and education support personnel, including those with a refugee background/status, and urgently address the key equity issues that have been aggravated by the pandemic.
• Safeguard the dignity and rights of all migrant workers by ratifying and applying the International Labour Organization’s Convention 143 and other relevant international labour standards, as well as including migrant workers and their families, regardless of their migration status, in COVID-19 economic recovery policies and plans.
Education International advocates for inclusive education
The importance of inclusive education was reaffirmed at the 8th Education International World Congress, held in 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand. Delegates endorsed the Resolution on Protecting the Rights of Immigrant and Refugee Children and Young People, which notes that “national governments must protect immigrant and refugee children and young people from detention, separation from their loved ones, child labour, forced recruitment into armed groups, sexual exploitation, child marriage, and violence”.
The resolution underlines that “education is the key to successful inclusion of immigrant and refugee children and young people in society. Educators should be given the means, the autonomy and support required to best respond to the needs of immigrant and refugee children and young people”.
The same congress, via the Resolution on Education for Refugees, outlined how 68.5 million people are forcibly displaced worldwide, of whom 25.4 million are refugees. In addition, 52 per cent of refugees are under the age of 18, with 7.4 million being of school age. It condemned the fact that four million refugee children do not attend school at all.
This resolution urges Education International and its member organisations to continue to work with campaigns and initiatives working to support refugee children and their families in accessing high quality education. And it calls on them to maintain pressure on national governments and on international institutions, with reference to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, to:
• Prioritise financial assistance for the education of refugees, people displaced by force or natural disasters, and those in need of international protection;
• Enable refugee teachers and education support staff to continue exercising their occupation in their new country; and
• Facilitate support/learning for teacher trade unions on how to respond to the impact of the refugee crisis in their countries/education systems and improve their education systems to guarantee the universal right to education without exclusion.
Educations unions proactive around refugees’ rights
Education International and its affiliates have been active on this issue around the world.
Most recently, Education International’s affiliates in the African region called on governments to take strong action for refugees migrants and internally displaced people, for example by putting in place contingency plans at all levels to manage large-scale population movements in times of crisis, ratifying and implementing UN and ILO Migrant Conventions, or ensuring free training and continuous professional development for migrant, refugee, and local teachers in order for them to meet the specific needs of migrating children and youth.
In Lebanon, unions warned the Ministry of Education on several occasions that refugee students and teachers are facing an education crisis aggravated by COVID-19. They highlighted that the Syrian refugee crisis has significantly impacted an already debilitated public education system, shaken in particular by the worst economic crisis in 30 years.
