Some parents in Chipata have condemned a decision by the Ministry of Education to overenroll pupils in grade 10 classes.
Justine Phiri and Mariah Tembo say that over enrolling is contributing to the poor performance of pupils in most schools.
The duo says that if pupils are too many in class, they fail to concentrate while teachers find it hard to teach.
They say that the ministry should construct more secondary schools as the population has grown in the province.
On Friday, Eastern Province Education Officer, Thomas Mwanza announced that the province will overenroll pupils in grade ten in some schools.
Mr. Mwanza stated that out of the over ten thousand pupils who have qualified to grade ten, close to 400 pupils do not have schools due to lack of secondary schools in the province.
