    THE CONFERENCE IS THE RESULT OF THE GOVERNMENT'S LONG-TIME CONCERN OVER THE ISSUE CONCERNING EDUCATION - SUCH AS, DISCIPLINE AND QUANTITY OF EDUCATION AVAILABLE AND, IN PARTICULAR, ALLEGATIONS THAT THE STANDARDS OF SCHOOLING AT ALL LEVELS ARE LOWER THAN IN COLONIAL DAYS.

    IT WAS FELT THAT, IF THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA COULD BRING FORWARD THEIR IDEAS AND SUGGESTIONS, THE EDUCATIONALIST AND AUTHORITIES WOULD BE ABLE TO SIFT THROUGH THEM AND ACT ON THOSE WHICH WERE CONSIDERED APT AND FEASIBLE.
