UNAVAILABILITY OF FUNDS STALL CONSTRUCTION OF SATELLITE SCHOOLS IN REMOTE AREAS
Written by admin on September 11, 2020
Government says unavailability of funds has stalled the construction of satellite schools in remote areas.
Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Eric Molale told parliament yesterday that satellite schools are built in localities after consideration of the distance of children from schools especially those in the lower classes, travel to school.
With some students still faced with the burden of walking very long distances to schools, Minister Molale said the government will in future consider building more satellite schools, subject to availability of funds.
