In essence, the policy of lowering admission scores for graduates of public primary schools encouraged the teachers to abdicate their mandate. Indeed there is no incentive for them to put more effort.
Other teachers ensure that they have dealt with their household chores before going to school anytime between 10 and 11am. In another school, the head teacher runs a bar in a nearby town.
The biggest learning leaps occur in upper primary level between Standards 4 to 5, and Standards 5 to 6.
