Department of Education Planning and Management

All the policies and strategies aimed at the development of educational sector are defined well in the various programs of development adopted since 1999 notably the " Vision 2020 " and the EDPRS.

 

Many efforts contributed to rapid growth of the number of schools. In all respects, the efforts have been made to train teachers. Not only the number of schools has increased, but also the number of pupils and staff members has so, schools have become “education businesses” which need to be managed effectively. The management and the administration of these numerous schools constitute another challenge to which our educational system has to deal with in order to ensure good quality of education. A lot of studies on the efficiency of schools have revealed that school management is very important for schools to provide good quality education. Our education will be effective if our schools are managed by specialists in administration of education.


Moreover, public and private schools in Rwanda, are headed by staff who are not specialists in school administration. Some of them do not even know that this discipline exists. Some courses in psychopedagogy and some notions of management do not allow directors of education at the level of districts, headmasters and the prefects in charge of studies and discipline, to manage well various human and material resources they are in charge of.


As for education planning, it aims at ensuring the relevance between different training courses, the appropriateness between the supply and the recognized demand and developing a well-balanced geographical network of schools. Rwanda is one of the countries with rapid population growth. Education has to follow at same speed, which requires good planning.

 

This very important domain of education requires, therefore, specialization.
