CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION
Harare metropolitan province is under ministry of primary and secondary education which specialises in educating every child in Zimbabwe without considering race and or disability. The ministry is currently using a traditional way of enrolling form one pupils. This system is creating unnecessary increase in parent’s expenditure. Parents have to travel from one school to the other searching for form one places for their children.
Most of the schools even charge a non refundable 20dollars as entrance test fee per child. The ministry is now going through a phase of change from the above mentioned old system to the new system. The system will improve the current working conditions, increase efficiency and convenience and also lessen the tiresome of hoping from school to school in search for form one places. The new system will record all the boarding and day form one places for all schools in the Harare metropolitan province, name of the schools, fees to be paid, locality, subjects being offered, school facilities being offered, school structure and staff qualifications, form one registration, school requirements as per school, school based calendars and or time tables, school visits, history or record of each pupils etc
1.2 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Public education in Zimbabwe was made free in 1980 and inequalities from the existing colonial system lessened. Education was declared a basic human right by Robert Mugabe’s incoming government and racial integration pursued. However, since 1988, the government has steadily increased the charges attached to school enrolment until they now greatly exceed the real value of fees in 1980. In principle; all children in Zimbabwe have the right to education. However, both development levies and tuition fees must be paid. Tuition fees have historically been very low, though development levies have been impediments. The majority of the wealthier portion of the population sends their children to independent schools, while the government-run schools are attended by the poorer members of the black population.
The country’s education system was once the most developed on the continent, although it continues to suffer from a contemporary decline in public funding linked to hyperinflation and economic mismanagement. As early as 1967, some 91.5% youth aged 5 to 14 were already enrolled in schools.
