55 55 EDUCATION STATISTICAL ABSTRACT 2011 EDUCATION STATISTICAL ABSTRACT 2011 According to Table 5.2 however, majority of the schools in the sub-sector do not receive any funding from government. This is because the Sub-sector is largely dominated by the private sector. 5.1.6 Schools Distance from DEO’s Main Office Table 5.3: Distance from DEO’s main office Region Below 10 km 10 - 20 km 20.1 - 30 km 30.1 - 40 km 40.1 -50 km Above 50 km Total Central 306 241 118 82 31 47 825 East 347 204 81 26 10 5 673 N.

This presupposes that these schools can freely seek support from the DEO’s office and also monitoring and support supervision by the same office can easily be done. On the other hand, compared with last year, the number of schools located in the distance of above 50km has reduced from 5.8% to 4.8% as government continues to extend services closer to the people through the creation of more districts. 5.1.7 Schools by Registration Status Majority of the schools (78.8%) were registered, while 21.2% schools are licensed, see Figure 5.4.

56 EDUCATION STATISTICAL ABSTRACT 2011 5.2 Student Enrolment in Secondary Schools 5.2.1 Enrolment in Secondary Schools by Grade and Gender Table 5.4: Enrolment by grade & gender According to Table 5.4, male students constituted 53.7% and female students 46.3%. Further analysis on enrolment by grade indicates that enrolment is more concentrated in lower classes. However there is a sharp drop from senior four to senior five, which indicates that a considerable number of students are unable to pursue advanced secondary level education.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
