Some argue that it is better to get children in school first and than worry about the quality of the eduction. If you take this line of reasoning than the results below look quite good: 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. The study conducted by Twaweza would not have been possible if children were not registered in school. i.e. how are we to know what is wrong with the education system if a system did not exist in the first place? So congrats to TZ for receiving the award! Next it is time to improve the quality. One thing at a time. from Raj Raina Columbia University NY, NY
