ADDIS ABABA – (BORKENA) – The Education Department of North Shewa Zone of Amhara Region urged that it should be worked cautiously to return the students who are out of school due to the breach of peace in the region.

Head of the Education Department of North Shewa Zone of Amhara Region,  Tadesse Shewaferahu said that though the current teaching and learning process of the academic year has already started, students numbering 310,000 have not yet been enrolled to schools due to the security problems in the region. 

219 thousand students who should have been enrolled at primary school are reportedly out of school. Similarly, 57 thousand students who were supposed to join secondary and preparatory schools have not got the opportunity to do so.

33 thousand preschool students have not yet gone to school. Totally, 500 schools have reportedly stopped rendering the teaching and learning services at the beginning of this new academic year. One school did not even register students, according to the news source.

Sources indicate that there are many limitations in the process of ensuring the quality of education. Lack of participation of stakeholders in the sector, failing to fulfil education infrastructure to the desired level in coverage and quality; lack of resources, and losing interest that can be expressed in various ways, are among the limitation factors.

Due to the above stated problems, the results scored in the education sector are not pleasing. This has been revealed in the recently released results of the 12th grade national examination. The scoring passing grade is getting less and less, the news source indicated.

The fact that teenagers are currently out of school due to the deteriorating security situation has caused unprecedented problems. Head of the Education Department of North Shewa Zone of Amhara Region, Tadesse Shewaferahu further said that experts “are not able to move freely and support” the education sector.

  1. Nigeria’s government has come under fire over a budget that included a 6 billion naira ($6.3 million) presidential yacht and luxury cars, as the country grapples with mounting debts and a cost-of-living crisis.
    Other analysts say it is “hypocrisy” for the government to spend on luxuries while impoverished citizens suffer hardship caused by the president’s economic reforms

    The Office of the Prime Minister is finalizing its preparation to construct a new national palace at a cost of 49 billion birr, when commenced the project will become PM Abiy most expensive mega project to date. Also, the project will become the second biggest public project next to the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, which has costed over 130 billion birr thus far.
    Situated on a sprawling 503 hectares of land at Yeka Hill, in Yeka Sub-city, the construction touches five woredas, which will harbor the construction of halls, 3 artificial lakes, housing units and road infrastructures, among other facilities

    When a military junta arrested President Ali Bongo Ondimba on August 30, Gabon became the ninth African nation to depose its government through a military coup.
    Four months after Ali assumed the presidency, a subsequently leaked document showed that his office had purchased 29 luxury vehicles valued at £12.8 million via a Swiss company.

    The purchase included two Maybach 62S (worth £426,680 each), two Rolls Royce Phantoms (£371,453 each) and two Rolls Royce Ghosts (£227,994 each).
    With Obama’s help, Bongo attempted to fashion himself as a reformist modernizer. He traveled repeatedly to Davos, Switzerland to attend the World Economic Forum, where was appointed an “Agenda Contributor.”

    Members of the Ethiopian National Defense Force are ruthlessly murdering defenseless innocent civilians, women, and elderly people, forcing them to bring in relatives from out of nowhere. For whatever decision made by their adult children, women, the elderly, or even anybody else should never be subjected to cruel treatment, incarceration,let alone brutal murder.

    If they are murdering innocent civilians from all ethnic groups in this way, they are officially identifying themselves as agents or servants of a single ruling party, a prosperity party, or more precisely, agents of a small number of egotistical, demagogue gang leaders. Everyone has to condemn this brutality, including members of this so-called Ethiopian defense force.
