We will upgrade the availability and quality of our entire education system, especially early childhood education. Without education, a youth is a social time bomb. We will impose and put into practice the principle that every young Congolese has the equal right and responsibility to attend nursery, primary and secondary school.
As the foundation of our educational system, we will improve teacher training and revamp the complete educational mission of accessibility, curriculum, pedagogical dynamics, vocational and technical training, continuing education of adults, and school financing. We will promote a public-private partnership to create a “Silicon Valley” type of center of excellence to stimulate research and teaching of new technologies, as a collaboration between Congolese and foreign universities. We will promote gender equality and women’s empowerment, seeking to remove any roadblocks to education, job training and work. In short, my administration will invest time, energy, and funding resources to develop the minds our country needs to take part in the world of the twenty-first century.
