The aim of the laptop distribution initiative is to help teachers get abreast with IT advancement in the education sector.

In the newly introduced curriculum, both the standard-based and common core programmes are computer-oriented hence the need for every teacher to own a laptop.

  1. I suggest the brand and about of the computers to be given to teachers be made public. So that we will be able to know whether it’s durable and merits the said cost. This will help eliminate teacher exploitation and increase value for money. Teacher exploitation has a lot of nagetive consequences on our education, resulting in the low performance we are experiencing. When teachers feel cheated, you can design the best of curriculum and pedagogical approaches, yet the desired outcome will not be achieved.

  2. I am disappointed in the unions on this one. How do you tell me they are LOWER TIERED PROCESSORS with a 4-GB RAM and still tell me the laptops “are ok by today’s standards”? How about “tomorrow”? You went in for a laptop that performs just the basic functions and …….
    In as much as we commend the three unions and the government for this initiative, I think the parties involved in the negotiation could have given teachers a better deal.
    If a government wants to implement “a digitization policy, must the teacher necessarily be made to bear part of the associated cost? Ok, if we are to pay a percentage of it, could they have given teachers a choice so those who would opt for higher specs would be made to pay a percentage of that? How about those who may not want to take it because they have better ones?
