“The government is working hard to modernize the education process”: Prof. Berhanu Nega
The Minister of Education, Prof. Berhanu Nega, said the government will focus on modernizing higher education institutions and the teaching process.
The minister is holding talks with leaders from various universities.
According to Prof. Berhanu, the lack of laboratory and IT infrastructure is one of the major challenges facing the institutions.
He also directed that most universities address the gaps in the quality of education and take immediate action to address them.
On the other hand, Prof. Berhanu said universities should be federal institutions, not regional institutions.
He said the universities should focus on establishing a system free from government influence and preventing environmentalism, theft and waste of resources.
