The Secondary Schools Teacher Union of Zambia says the union will back reforms that government wants to embark on aimed at curbing examination leakages.
Union General Secretary Sitibekiso Wamuyuwa says reforms such as reducing the periods spent writing exams and revising examination time tables is good and should be supported by all.
Mr. Wamuyuwa says this will also enhance security of exam papers because they will be kept for a short period of time in schools and few people will have access to strong rooms.
However, Mr. Wamuyuwa was quick to mention that government needs to engage all stakeholders to ensure that such reforms are embraced by all.
Recently, General Education Minister David Mabumba said his ministry is in talks with the Examinations Council of Zambia ECZ to revise the exam timetable for grades 7, 9 and 12.
Mr. Mabumba said the long periods that are spent writing exams may also be a reason for circulation of leakages among pupils.
