W. Mbizvo


The main purpose of this paper is to highlight some issues and concerns in the Zimbabwean educational system in general, and in particular, issues and concerns within the purview for technical and vocational education. The paper will further provoke debate within the context of technical and vocational education as a strategy geared for rural development. The paper, therefore, will analyse policies and practices and will further examine their implications, with a view to making recommendations for directing technical and vocational education towards rural development in Zimbabwe.
