Analysis of the Governance of the Education System in Haut Katanga

Dihumba Kabwe

Abstract: In this article, we are motivated by the governance of the education sector. The economic objective is to achieve the schooling of the majority of children through the educational policy of free education at the primary level, in addition to the other resources and actors that the State uses to finance education in both cycles (primary and secondary). The governance of the education system in Haut - Katanga is the responsibility of state structures. The latter uses strategies that encourage different households to enroll their children in primary and secondary education. In view of these strategies linked to centralized coordination, the majority of children in the province of Haut - Katanga, especially at secondary level, do not complete their studies. Several reasons are mentioned in this article, including centralized coordination and low household income. Moreover, these reasons do not encourage households to send their children to school. In other words, the educational costs and benefits are in contradiction with the labor market for the majority of learners. This is justified by the obsolescence of certain courses of study organized at secondary level. Consequently, these courses do not follow the evolution of the economic and technological environment which should be to the advantage of the learners, their families and the province in the future. Thus, the governance of the education system reveals a remarkable deficit in terms of financial resources, infrastructure, accessibility and future economic and technological benefits for the learners of Haut - Katanga province in particular and the Democratic Republic of Congo in general, because the objective that the State has set itself has not been achieved.
