Oshikoto governor, Henock Kankoshi called on stakeholders in the education sector to address the high number of school drop-outs in the region.
Kankoshi said this while launching the region’s 2017 academic year at Onguti Senior Secondary School in the Okankolo Constituency on Friday.
He encouraged all education stakeholders, especially parents, to ensure that all children of school-going age attend school.
“We cannot afford to lose these future leaders. They are coming to your houses when they leave school and it is you, dear parents who can do something about them,” Kankoshi said.
The governor said 1 768 learners dropped out of school in the region last year - 459 in the first term, 694 in the second term and 615 in the third term.
Speaking at the same function, the Director of Education, Arts and Culture in Oshikoto, Lamek Kafidi pointed out that 11 schools in the region had 100 per cent pass rates in the Grade 10 final examinations last year.
