NGOCC Urge Parents to attend PTA Meetings

Non-Governmental Co-ordinating Council (NGOCC) counsellor Jean Mweene has called on parents to take keen interest to attend Parent teachers Association (PTA) meetings in schools so as to make informed decisions.

Ms Mweene says it is in such meetings that decisions are made on school requirements and the running of the school is critically addressed.

She said this in an exclusive interview with Zambezi fm news on the side lines of the Economic Social and Cultural Rights (ESCR) monitoring and evaluation stakeholders workshop organised by Jesuit Centre for Theological Reflection (JCTR) at Livingstone lodge on Wednesday.

Brenda Mufalali reports that Ms Mweene said by attending meetings, issues of transparency can be addressed, as parents have raised concerns over certain school requirements that go missing within the school premises.

She wondered how cement in some schools has been collected and no wall fence has been erected as the question of accountability remains.

Ms Mweene further called on teachers to consider establishing deliberate policies to accommodate parents who are not conversant with English as it creates communication barriers.

She said the other aspect is of gender problem where women remain mute during meetings, but complain a lot once they get back to the community that issues were not discussed in their favour.
