Serengeti — TANZANIA should strive to offer education that prepares job makers instead of producing job seekers, Mr Nimrod Mkono, a CCM member of Parliament, has observed .
The MP made the observation when he was officiating at the first Form Four graduation ceremony at Serengeti Nuru Secondary School on Friday.
"Education should be for self-reliance and not education for being employed, " Mr Mkono, who is the MP for Musoma Rural constituency, told hundreds of students at the private school which is located on the outskirts of Mugumu town.
Mr Mkono also called for investment in science subjects, a move which would help the nation achieve Smart Partnership Dialogue goals.
"We need many mathematicians and nowadays technology is everything, " the lawmaker said. He urged schoolteachers to give science subjects priority in their teaching.
The MP inaugurated a new multimillion-shilling modern girls dormitory at the school, which accommodates both female and male students hailing from Serengeti District and neighbouring districts.
He commended Mr John Ng'oina, a local investor, for setting up the school in the district where most people were yet to realize that education is key to development.
