It has been reported that the Education Act 2010 has been ratified by the government of Lesotho. Now the access to complimentary and necessary education is legalised. The act is summoned as a remarkable milestone for the children of Lesotho and is said to improve school enrolment.
In 2000, free primary education was introduced in Lesotho, as a key approach for attaining the "Education for All" goals. At present the rate of enrollment stands at a remarkable 82% of primary school aged children – 80% of boys and 84% girls.
Today, Ahmed Magan, the Lesotho representative of the UN's children agency UNICEF, summoned the new act.
He said, "This law will give a major boost to education; it is a critical step forward in reaching the remaining 18 percent of the most vulnerable children who are still out of school. The next phase of implementation is the most decisive stage to ensure the fundamental right to free and compulsory education is fully realized”.
It is said that Lesotho has one of the maximum size of orphans worldwide at 12% of the populace and the third maximum occurrence of HIV.
Following the long anticipated ratification of the Children's Protection and Welfare Act last week, the new Education Act was out, a regulation that aims a lot of the similar deprived kids.
