Charging Fees For Extra Lessons Constitutes Corruption - ZACC

Charging Fees For Extra Lessons Constitutes Corruption - ZACC

Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) spokesperson John Makamure said that it is illegal for teachers to ask parents to pay fees for extra lessons adding that the practice constitutes corruption.

Speaking to NewsDay on Monday, Makamure said ZACC will soon launch an awareness campaign to ensure that teachers desist from the practice. He said:

We are soon going to launch anti-corruption awareness campaigns in all the provinces to ensure that we engage education officers to stop corruption at schools, especially those requesting money for extra lessons from parents. We want teachers to know that it is very illegal.

Those found breaking the law will be charged and taken to the court. Parents should also know that it is unlawful to pay fees for extra lessons to teachers.

That is the penalty that these teachers are likely to face if they continue with such activities.

Reports suggest that some teachers are demanding from US$5 to US$10 from each pupil for extra lessons and those who fail to pay are neglected during regular lessons.

Zimbabwean teachers are among the lowest-paid in the region. They are pushing for the restoration of the pre-October 2018 salary of US$540.

So is Zacc suggesting that extra lessons are necessary but teachers must not charge for them?

Extra means in addition to. Why is it necessary to have lessons in addition to the normal lessons? Time is money, and the extra time for extra lessons done outside normal hours away from school premises should also be considered by zacc. Most of us, and possibly most of those in zacc made it through school without a need for extra lessons. What made extra lessons surface is what needs to be removed.

The reality is that extra lessons are a priority for those of us with children in public schools due perpetual tension btwn gvt and teachers its hypocrisy to gain mileage & popularity when these oligarchs children are not enrolled in public shools
