A young boy holds up his chalkboard in a very crowded classroom. The government abolished school fees for primary education in 1994, resulting in an increase in primary school enrolment from 1.9 million pupils to 3.2 million and an average pupil-teacher ratio of 72:1. However, drop out rates are high with 60% of children failing to complete their primary schooling.
