Headteachers have now collectively concerted their professionality in Heads of Schools Organisation (HoSO) by which means they will derive approaches to solving barriers to quality education.
HoSO is comprised of kindergarten, primary and secondary education headteachers from both both public and private schools that will share discussions convened on improving the quality of education in the country.
Challenges like the increase in the number of dropouts, repeating class, and misconceptions during school are expected to be resolved by the HoSO.
HoSO coordinator, Innocent Gatete says the organization will be a platform for headteachers to be pivotal in ensuring education is rendered with quality.
“Quality education is why we like professionals decided to concert on building this foundation to ensure quality education for our children,” he said.
State Minister for Primary and Secondary Education, Dr. Isaac Munyakazi said this organization will support the government by advising one another.
Earlier during the 15 edition of Umwiherero or the National Leaders Retreat, Rwandan President Paul Kagame, called for the harnessing of such culture.
“Among the strengths of those who have attained development are humilty and hard work. Professionalism should be a habit among leaders if we want to get the results we want. The effort must be collective. There should be consequences for those who try to discourage these efforts. To the new, young public servants, resist attempts to discourage you, or slow you down. Fight back. Do what you know is right for your country,”he said.
It is expected that the organization will bring together over 8000 head teachers from across the country.
