2020 has been one strange year in many regards. Schools have been closed since March when the government was forced to curtail learning in a bid to slow the rate at which the virus could spread.

ARTUZ Condemn The Government’s Plan To Have November Examinations

By |2020-08-20T12:47:22+02:00August 20th, 2020|

On Tuesday we were startled to learn that the government wanted the November examinations to go ahead.

The question on everyone’s minds when it comes to education in Zimbabwe is: When will schools reopen?

The government has said that schools will only reopen once it’s safe to do so even if it means not reopening this year.
