The paper exposed stakeholders’ perceptions on the state of the education system in Zimbabwe’s institutions of learning as from 2007 up to 2010. The country experienced a lot of economic hardships. Inflation rose to alarming rates and workers could not be paid adequately. This in turn resulted in the collapse of the education system. The introduction of multiple currencies and foreign currency fees and examination fees created a lot of drop - outs from schools, colleges and universities. There was a high failure rate at Grade Seven,’ O’ and ‘A’ Levels. There was an exodus into the Diaspora of skilled manpower to various countries of the world in search of greener pastures. The remaining workers could not deliver quality services. They have not yet been paid adequate salaries. Educators should be paid adequate salaries and have improved working conditions as well as be provided with adequate resources so as to produce quality results.
Keywords: inflation, multiple currencies, drop-outs, exodus, Diaspora and greener pastures.
