The Minister of Primary and Secondary Education, Dr Lazarus Dokora says the new curriculum will not in any way disadvantage rural school children.

The parliamentarians went through a workshop aimed at educating them on the new curriculum framework for primary and secondary education.

Meanwhile, the Speaker of Parliament, Advocate Jacob Mudenda said the workshop has been an eye opener to the parliamentarians.

National Assembly member for Chegutu West, Cde Dexter Nduna said the workshop gave the legislators the opportunity to ask questions related to the curriculum, which were addressed.

The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education which rolled out a new curriculum for primary and secondary education in Zimbabwe shared some guidelines on subjects set for ordinary level students.

All students will have to sit for maths, english language, general science, indigenous languages, agriculture, physical education, sport and mass display and heritage studies.
