Luanda — Education minister Mpinda Simão on Friday in Luanda said that the valorization of teachers, improvement of the teaching system and expansion of the schooling network are part of the programme of the Angolan executive for the education sector, for the 2013-2017 period.
The minister said so when delivering a speech at the opening of a meeting with social partners, which aims to collect opinions that can contribute to the success of the mentioned objectives and reflect about the functioning of the country's educational institutions.
"Education, although a task of the state, is a social phenomenon that justifies a permanent intervention of all social actors", Mpinda Simão emphasised.
The minister heard the opinions and suggestions of each representative of an association linked to the education field, such as trade unionists, parents and guardians, which will enrich the elaboration of education policies.
According to the human resources director of the Education Ministry, Ramiro João, besides this meeting, there will be a gathering of the Technical Council, which will collect more contributions that will have to be submitted to another forum set for February 2013.
