ADDIS ABABA – The new five-year education roadmap will be put into effect starting from the 2021/22 academic year, says the ministry of education.
The Ministry unveiled the new education road map in its 30th national comprehensive education conference held on Monday.
The roadmap will replace the education system that has been in place for well over two decades.
The old system has failed to bring the sought quality and efficiency as well as human resource development, according to a report by state-run news agency ENA.
The new roadmap is prepared to ensure the quality and accessibility of the education system in the country, it says.
Education Minister, Getahun Mukaria (PhD/Eng.) said the new curriculum gives major priorities including ethics, indigenous knowledge, vocational education, technology, production and practice, research and development.
On the same day, the ministry signed bilateral cooperation agreements with six ministries including health and agriculture as well as the Ethiopian Chamber of Commerce Sectoral Association.
The agreements will help the ministry of education implement the new curriculum reform in a coordinated and collaborative manner, its officials said.
