PRIMARY SCHOOL QUALITY IMPROVEMENT
-To date the ratio of books stands at 1:6. This was caused by the rules/ guides on the right
text to be used in learning. Before this ruling out of text to be used, the ratio of books was
1:6. The paradigm shift of learning and lack of funds are the main cause of this situation.
-Teachers’ pupil ratio before PEDP was 1:85 to date stands at 1:46 which indicates the
teachers’ employment does not match with the increased enrollment.

shows the encouragement of government initiatives.
-Availability of other teaching materials to date increases tremendously as funds for
purchase of teaching materials is made available .
