Mr. Mwanza says that the pass rate represents a percentage of 43.75 per cent, which has dropped from last year’s 48.79 per cent.
He expressed sadness over the low pass rate, which has dropped by about 5 per cent.
Mr. Mwanza says that the low pass rate by the pupils clearly indicates that the effectiveness of the teachers is questionable.
The PEO says that the Ministry of Education will try its best to find out what has caused the low passing rate so that it does not occur again.
And Mr. Mwanza says that out of the over 10 thousand pupils who have qualified to grade 10, almost 4 thousand do not have places in secondary schools because of lack of schools in the province.
Mr. Mwanza says that the ministry will have no choice but to again over enrol pupils in certain schools.
