Paul Mupa


The study sought to shed light on conditions that are needed by schools to become learning organisations and knowledge creating schools for quality teaching and learning of HIV and AIDS. The study was based on a qualitative paradigm. Purposive sampling was done to select participants from a population of teachers and school heads in primary schools in Zimbabwe. Open- ended questionnaires, semi-structured interviews and focus group discussions were the main data gathering tools. The study strengthens the knowledge of the connections between school conditions and quality teaching and learning of HIV and AIDS. The study found out that schools teachers and school heads lack knowledge of the subject, they lack commitment to teach HIV and AIDS, the schools lack textbooks and other useful resources and materials to teach the subject, the curriculum is not well spelt out and syllabus documents are not available, if at all they exist. The study recommends education and training of both teachers and school heads, provision of resources, crafting of a relevant curriculum and availing of syllabuses in schools.
