Mr Rozious Siatwambo is the founder and Director of Great North Road Academy an independent school in Zambia’s capital Lusaka. The school encourages “drop-outs” of any age to return to education. The school encourages interactive learning and students unable to attend classes can enroll in distance learning at home through DVDs and CDs recorded at the school. Mr Siatwambo had a fairly conventional start in education – he gained a degree in education from the University of Zambia but after graduating he decided that he was not going to follow his peers. “I didn’t want to join the government. I didn’t want to join anywhere. So what I had to do is, I had to now search my heart, search what I’d learnt at the university and then I started using those skills to come up with something,” he told the BBC’s series African Dream. Mr Siatwambo is a columnist on Examination Techniques in The Post newspaper and author of a book entitled; Exams Made Easy. Mr Siatwambo is our guest on Perspectives this week as he shares with us how this school is operating in a system with a great need for education reforms
