Tanzania education highlights successes

The Tanzania Education Authority (TEA) says it has financed 1,290 education projects since 2004, many of them involving ICTs for schools.

In announcing the new TEA board this week, the Minister for Education and Vocational Training, Dr Shukuru Kawambwa, said TEA had financed projects worth 36.7 TZN billion- since its inception in 2004.

The Minister said the number of schools had increased from 1,745 to 4,367, the number of teachers' colleges from 52 to 92 and the number of universities has increased from 23 to 41.

The process was ongoing, said the Minister, and the government was implementing ambitious projects to improve education in the country.

TEA Board Chairperson, Dr Naomi Katunzi, said some of the challenges the board would face in the next 5 years would include addressing a lack of facilities, learning materials and ICT equipment at schools.
