DR Congo: Access to Free Basic Education Irreversible – Bishops
For nearly 30 years, it has been the duty of parents to contribute to the salaries of teachers in the DRC, a policy that made it difficult for many parents to keep their children in school.
Speaking on behalf of the Bishops of CENCO, Fr. Nshole recalled, “In their message of June 2019, the Bishops members of CENCO, who had already in 2004 exercised the option not to impose on parents the payment of teachers’ salaries, expressed their satisfaction at the announcement of this (free education) decision.”
Referencing free education, the Congolese cleric “urged competent authorities to ensure necessary prerequisites for its proper implementation, including a guarantee of a decent salary for all teachers and the regularization of the salary situation of unpaid teachers.”
Drawing on his extensive scriptural knowledge, and profound love of art, Fr Denis McBride C.Ss.R. offers us a reflection for Palm Sunday.
