Private Schools in Rwanda shuts down due to Grwoth of Public Schools

Published

on


More than 30 Private schools in Rwanda have shut down this year and
many more face an uncertain future following dwindling admissions as
parents increasingly take their kids to public schools.

Desperate proprietors who face closure of their institutions are now
asking the government to sponsor students in private schools at public
rates but the government has rejected the idea.

According to reports by Rwanda Today, school owners
who managed to stay open are struggling to meet their operational
costs. Samuel Batamba, the head teacher at College Nkunduburezi in
Gakenke District said, ‘We’ve suffered a sharp decline in the number
of students enroled, yet the school has accumulated debt, unpaid
salaries and owes arrears to suppliers. It is not clear if the school
will re-open’.

The “problem” started with the government’s twelve-year basic
education policy which made public schools affordable and preferable.
According to the report, the Ministry of Education invested hugely in
expanding capacity and teaching infrastructure at public schools across
the country; introduced the school feeding programme and abolished
school fees.

According to statistics from the Ministry of Education, the
government owns 460 out of the more than 1,575 schools in the country.
The rest are run by religious bodies with the Catholic church owning 620
schools, the Anglican church 279, Adventist church 22 and Muslim
schools are at 16. Another 178 schools are run by parents’ associations
and individuals.

Mr Batamba continued to lament saying most private schools used to
have around 900 students but now they barely have 80 students and they
are failing to attract new students.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
