Greetings from NYC! Given the complexity of the problem the results look quite good to me: - About 80 percent of the children who had completed seven years of primary school could read their own language, Kiswahili, at the Grade 2 level; - Half of them could read English, which is the medium of instruction in secondary education; - And about 70 percent could do a simple (Grade 2) multiplication problem. Isn't it better to get children in school first and than worry about the quality of the eduction? How would you know what is wrong with the system if you don't even have one in the first place? Raj
