Beyond Zimbabwe’s 5.0 Education Model

A Critical Examination

edited by Costain Tandi, Munyaradzi Mawere

This book provides a thought-provoking and comprehensive examination of Zimbabwe's ground-breaking 5.0 Education Model. As Zimbabwe grapples with the ever-evolving landscape of education, this timely work explores the ambitious 5.0 Education Model that has captured the nation's attention. The authors provide a meticulous evaluation of the model's objectives, methodologies, and outcomes, shedding light on its impact on students, teachers, and the overall educational ecosystem. Drawing from extensive research, empirical evidence, and interviews with key stakeholders, the book critically analyses the strengths and weaknesses of the 5.0 Education Model. While acknowledging the model's strengths, the authors do not shy away from examining its limitations and potential pitfalls. Through a balanced and insightful exploration, the book raises crucial questions about the sustainability, scalability, and long-term viability of the 5.0 Education Model. It invites readers to reflect on the broader implications of this educational paradigm, both within Zimbabwe and beyond. As a timely and compelling contribution to the discourse on educational innovation and reform, this book encourages readers to engage in a critical examination of the 5.0 Education Model and its implications for Zimbabwean society. It serves as an invaluable resource for those seeking a deeper understanding of the nuances, complexities, and possibilities underpinning educational transformation in the country.
