EDUCATION AND YOUTHS
Education is not about the acquisition of knowledge. In Latin the word education is from a root called ‘eduo’, which means to draw out. This implies that, education is application of what one is taught, to make a contribution and value addition, or solve contextual problems of our nation. The repeated failure, to provide support for the Zambian Students in tertiary institutions, primary, and, secondary levels, requires a transformative approach, which is pragmatic, proactive, and not reactive. It is not enough to only build Infrastructure, but it is the development of the learners Mind to take us to first world development, that will determine our competitive edge, in the region, and around the world. Education is a right of every youth. Education for us is the knowledge bank for first world reforms in government after 2021. The Future of Zambia, is not only in the Youths, but shall be re-crafted, reformed and forged by the participation of Youths in national decision making processes. Therefore, it is the policy of our Movement for National Transformation, to change the direction of education to first world Standards. First, by reforming the education system, to be more centered on research for innovation, science and technology, and purposeful engagement, for practical skills. Secondly, all youths involved in violence, elicit drunkenness, and drugs, we need you to stop, and be part of forming a new first world Zambia. Keep your mind sober, and learn to learn, for national contribution. Join the Movement, and share with other youths, Zambia needs your contribution. Be a lifelong learner. The last lesson you learnt, is the last progress you made!
