Parents in Chipinge have expressed dissatisfaction over teachers who are threatening to award poor marks to their children when marking the Continuous Assessment Learning Activity if they fail to pay them USD $30 bribe. Appealing to the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education to intervene on the matter, parents who spoke in an interview pinpointed teachers at Matione Primary School for cashing in on CALA projects for learners who are set to seat for public examinations this year. CALA performance results are expected to contribute 30 percent of candidates’ final mark in the public examinations.
