Zambian 2013 Grade 12 Examination Results: Why they were poor

When Zambia’s education minister, Dr. John Phiri announced this year’s results for 2013 Grade 12 examinations, which were generally very poor, he attributed the deplorable performance to the high levels of illiteracy among Grade 12 pupils. He said, ”The general poor 2013 Grade 12 examination results are attributed to the fact that majority of pupils today cannot read with understanding nor write.” The minister further announced that Grant-Aided and Private schools produced better results…

Then there is the obvious natural factor of death which could be quite common in 

the lower age groups…

Teacher Capacity in Inclusive Education

When some teachers in Zambia brought up the issue of mixing children with disabilities with those without, I felt something was not being adequately addressed. An example was given of a teacher who was required to teach a visually challenged pupil who was brought into her class. The teacher definitely found this to be a huge challenge not only to herself, but to the pupil as well. Again this draws me back to the issue I have always talked about at different forums. This issue also hinges…
