Table 6.1: Schools by Distance from DEO’s Main Office Distance from DEO's Main Office No. of Institutions %age Below 10 km 105 55.6% 10 - 20 km 49 25.9% 20.1 - 30 km 17 9.0% 40.1 -50 km 8 4.2% 30.1 - 40 km 7 3.7% Above 50 km 3 1.6% Grand Total 189 100.0% 6.1.7 Distance from Similar School Considering distance between schools of similar levels, 34.9% of the schools were within a distance of less than a kilometer from their neighboring schools and 65.1% within a distance of more than a kilometer. However, the availability of more than 113 (59.8%) of the institutions within a distance between and less than 1km to 2km is a clear indication of government’s continued commitment to improving access indicators (i.e it is believed that the availability of learning institutions within walkable distances augments learners’ morale and reduces absenteeism) .

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
