education ministryHe says the ultimate objective is to increase the levels of literacy and numeracy in the nation’s schools.

He said that they have found that there are too many students in the school system that are operating way below the accepted standard.

The Minister disclosed that they want to improve students’ academic performance and this will decrease incidences of indiscipline in schools.

As a result the Education Minister said that they have targeted 56 Secondary Schools whose students fall within those brackets.

He said that research by the Ministry shows that the problem stems from inadequate teaching at the standard one level.
