Ministry of Education and Sports gathers information annually in a census exercise that covers all education subsectors i.e. Pre-primary, Primary, Secondary, Post-primary, Non-formal and Tertiary. In the same vain, data on schools was collected during ASC 2011, and analyzed. In Data on children’s performance obtained from UNEB was also analyzed as indicated in the findings. The summaries of key findings from the 2011 ASC by subsector are presented here below; a) Pre-Primary Schools There was a poor return in this subsector as only 2,361 schools responded out of the 6,579 that were mapped in 2010 during the baseline census exercise translating into a response rate of 36%. The total enrolment of 214,797 was registered in the 2,361 pre-primary institutions that responded to the 2011 ASC with a female enrolment share of 50.9%. The total number of teachers in these schools was 8,479 (82.6% female) translating into a Pupil Teacher Ratio (PTR) of 25:1. This is an indication that for every 25 pupils in pre- primary there is a teacher to take care. The Census recorded 7,165 classrooms (64.8% permanent) translating into a Pupil Classrooms Ratio (PCR) of 30:1 implying that for each pre-primary classroom there is an average of 30 pupils. However, the proportion of those enrolled in pre-primary to the population of 3 to 5 year that is meant to be in primary is still low at only 6%. This is an indication that 94% of the population meant to be in pre-primary is not. a) Primary Schools A total of 16,684 primary schools returned the ASC 2011 questionnaires. Of these, 12,075 are Government Aided while 4,609 are Non Government that responded to the 2011 ASC. The total enrolment in the 16,684 primary schools was 8,098,177 (4,039,734 males and 4,058,443 females). This shows that the gender parity gap has remained stable with female having a slightly higher share of 50.1%. Government aided schools enumerated registered a total enrolment of 7,063,529 (3,512,815 males and 3,523,714 females). A total of 169,503 teachers (104,494 males and 65,009 females) were registered in all primary schools that responded, with a gender imbalance of 61.6% in favor of male teachers translating into a Pupil Teacher Ratio (PTR) of 48:1. Government aided schools registered 129,694 teachers (81,974 males and 47,720 females) translating to PTR in Government schools of 54:1 which is slightly higher than the overall by a 6 percentage points.

The north eastern region had the smallest proportion of pupils with adequate sitting and writing space of less than 42.2%. A total of 142,802 classrooms were recorded during the ASC 2011, 78.8% of which are permanent. This translates into a Pupil Classroom Ratio (PCR) of 57.

    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.
