JUST IN: Educational blaming does not benefit youth

Ellanie Smit
The Association of Technical and Vocational Education Training Institutions in Namibia (ATVETIN) says the release of the 2022 grade 11 and 12 examination results has led to finger-pointing and blame-shifting.

“However, blaming others does not help the Namibian youth,” says the association’s chairperson, Regina Ambambi.

“The results and some of the detailed analyses paint a disappointing picture to the nation in the wake of the release of the matric results. However, singling out people to blame for the current circumstances will not change things. We need honesty and acceptance of the responsibility from all stakeholders.”

She added that the Technical and Vocational Education Training sector is ready to accept learners that are willing and able to venture into this sector as a preferred career choice.
