Abstract—The paper attempted to bring out the challenges that hinder sustainable implementation of Information communication Technology (ICT) as a subject in rural Zambian schools. The methodology employed in carrying out the exercise included the review of relevant literature published from printed and electronic sources including research studies, evaluation reports, government policy documents, donor policy documents and project reports, newspaper reports and so on. Among the most notable factors that emerged as challenges that hinder sustainable implementation of ICT as a subject in schools in rural Schools in developing countries such as Zambia are; Lack of electricity, Inadequate ICT teachers to teach the subject, high pupil-computer ratio and lack of enough ICT learning and teaching materials. Given the challenges above, the paper proposes an implementation framework. The framework reflects the four players that might influence the successful implementation of ICT as a subject in the rural schools of Zambia. These players are the Government, School administration, Cooperating partners and Colleges and Universities.
