    School orders parents to bring landlords for ECD places

    GWERU – In what could be a degrading practice, Cecil John Rhodhes (CJR) Primary School in Gweru is ordering parents looking for ECD places for 2017 to bring landlords as proof of their physical address.
    An angry parent who visited The Mirror offices said it was shocking that an application for a place cannot be considered without the landlord physically presenting himself at the school.
    He said this has an unpleasant connotation for the parent and the child who can only get a place through the blessings of the landlord.
    CJR head Idah Nyabeze referred all questions to the Provincial Education Director Agnes Gudo.
    "You should go and see the PED as she is the right person to comment," said Nyabeze.
    Gudo said that the move was to ensure that parents do not submit application forms with wrong addresses. She said there was a previous incident that resulted in such checks.
    "There is an incident where 11 application forms had one address. On checking, it was discovered that just three of the applicants were resident at that address," said Gudo.
    Another parent said there was chaos at the school as parents and their landlords queued for places.
    Parents who could not bring their landlords in the morning because they will be at work had to wait until the landlords were free.

    1. What guarantee does the school get from the presence of a landlord, more so what do they lose if a wrong address is given. The reporter must have probbed the authorities as to what their fears are if wrong addresses were given.

    3. While it appears are various choices, there are just three fundamental sorts of understudy medical coverage arrangements. Restorative costs while in school can be secured by their folks' wellbeing design, the school wellbeing design or some business understudy wellbeing design. Visit Here
