Pupils from Magwero School for the Blind in Chipata have complained over lack of study materials in Braille and large print.
The pupils say that they are behind in terms of information because the school does not have enough study materials in Braille and large print.
The pupils also said that government should reduce the passing rate at grade twelve level from five O-levels to at least three O-levels since they do not have access to study materials.
Meanwhile, head teacher at the School for the deaf, Sara Dipa bemoaned lack of accommodation, dormitories and classrooms at the school.
Mrs. Dipa says that being the only residential school in the province, it accommodates a lot of pupils including those from other provinces.
When contacted for a comment, Provincial Education Officer Thomas Mwanza says that he will comment on the matter latter.
