What a happy day it was when each child was given their very own pencil.
Number charts are made out of grain bags and bottle caps.
Children use benches to sit on and another bench for a desk.
Dirt floors are wet down with dirty water at the beginning of the day to keep the dust down.
Learning is hard when you're hungry.
Learning is hard when there aren't enough books.
Learning is hard when you have to share a pencil.
Learning is hard when there isn't enough paper. Learning is hard when the teacher doesn't have chaulk.
Learning is hard when you have one test paper and each child waits for his turn to fill in the blanks.
Government schools provide free education for the primary level only. The primary level consists of grades 1 - 8.
Although the education is said to be free the added costs make it impossible for alot of families to meet.
Funding is needed for: uniforms, books, paper, pens, pencils, transportation to and from school.
At the end of the eight grade every student must take a national test. In order to continue on with their education they must score high on the test.
If they do well on the national test they then have the opportunity to pay for the next four years of school. If they do not pull high test scores their education ends.
