Special Needs Education Student Teachers Boycott Exams
Special needs education student teachers at Montfort Special Needs Education College in Chiradzulu have on Friday boycotted their examinations over disagreements with college authorities who are demanding the learners to return computer tablets to the school upon finishing their examinations.
One of the teachers who has pleaded for anonymity told Zodiak Online initially the college told them they will take the gadgets after their studies since they contain all the courses’ materials.
He said surprisingly, this week the school authorities rescinded their decision.
“Efforts to reason with college authorities to buy the iPads at a reasonable price have yielded negative results hence boycotting the last examination paper which was action research in inclusive education,” said the teacher.
College authorities have not been available to comment on the matter.
Spokesperson for the ministry of education Chikondi Chimala said he will comment on the matter later.
