There is no doubt that education is irreplaceable in every man's contemporary world. Through this everyone has to remember that education is not entirely based on good buildings and qualified teachers but only the contribution of the students that attend the schools matters.
Whether Rwanda like other African countries, it has been a question why high profile officials prefer taking their children abroad leaving their home schools deserted. To local school administrators, this is a way of disempowering domestic education because it is nurturing a culture of abroad-minded students.
In the mini-survey interview with some students of the University of Rwanda, they all believe that taking children abroad negatively impacts the quality of local education.
The campus spoke with students to find out how they view this challenging question.
Oscar Mugaga, a third-year student at UR Nyagatare Campus believes that Rwanda is a developing country which its educational sector has to only boost once the parents support their home education by educating their children in local schools.
Queen Kamikazi, a student at UR Huye Campus, argues it is a matter of social status quo of individuals and families' wealth rather than being a fact of only officials.
"I don't see a problem of parents taking their children abroad to study if they can sacrifice whatever in their capacity to give their children a better education. And this is a problem of someone's capability to pay the school fees instead of political officials because even individuals with a lot of money take their children abroad," Kamikazi said.
