|dc.description.abstract||The journal seeks to provide a forum to these education professionals for the dissemination of current views and ideas on education practices, policies and development, and research findings in Zambia. Contributions may discuss issues or present research findings in primary schools, secondary schools, tertiary level institutions and/or management and support sectors. Articles that address education issues in other countries, but show how these would are relevant to Zambia, will be considered on merit. It is the wish of the School of Education to contribute to the development of the Zambian education system and the country as a whole through this journal. Consequently, the Editorial Board urges academics in the School of Education and other educational professionals to engage in research that would answer a number of questions in Zambia’s education system and use this journal to disseminate their results to the country and beyond. We wish to transform university scholarship into practice that helps the Zambian education system to strengthen and benefit its various target beneficiaries better.
The Editorial Board would like issues of ZAJE to include articles in four major thematic areas, namely; reports on researches conducted, including progress reports on on-going research, reports on academic or professional seminars, book reviews, and discussions on current issues in education.
The current issue has the first two articles focusing on Special Education issues, while the next two are on the topical issues of Education for All and HIV and AIDS in education. The fifth and sixth articles deal with issues of religion and education in Zambia, while the seventh and eighth articles are on mentorship of junior academic staff at UNZA and CBU and review of teacher education syllabuses in colleges of education, respectively. .
It is hoped that these articles will provoke further research and discussion on the discussed issues and other topics of national interest in education||en
