The Student Solidarity Trust today had a follow-up meeting with the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Higher Education, Science and Technology to give oral evidence on issues that are negatively affecting the countries institutions of higher and tertiary education following an initial meeting held in January 2011. The Committee had set 7th March 2011 as the day for it to collect oral evidence from stakeholders in the education sector. The issues discussed ranged from the funding of students through a proposed multi-donor fund to boost the sector. Limited funding of the sector is the root cause of most of the viability challenges faced by institutions of higher learning. Other issues discussed involved the restriction of operations of Student Representative Councils (SRCs), the closed halls of residence at University of Zimbabwe and the victimizations of student activists. Please find attached a copy of the written submission made to Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Higher Education Science and Technology.
