    Excerpts from the article...

    "Picture this, Uwezo's study found that nearly 10 per cent or 75,000 of the 746,000 children who sat for the standardised test offered to 13-year-olds in Kenya at level 8 could not do a typical long division mathematics problem expected of a seven-year old in Standard 2.

    Only 1.4 per cent of Kenyan boys and girls could solve advanced math problems expected at this level.

    In Uganda, 15 per cent of the pupils at Standard 7 could not do Standard 2 math.

    And in Tanzania, a third of the students faced the same fate."

    "Less than one per cent of students are performing at the advanced level in math proficiency for the region, compared with 28 per cent in Taiwan and over 20 per cent in Hong Kong, Korea and Finland"

    "In Tanzania, nearly half of all primary school graduates could not read a sentence that a seven-year old would not be expected to have trouble with"

    Then the outcome .......

    "This data reveals the main cracks that have continued to divide EAC states: with Kenya accounting for 75 per cent of East Africa's total education spending, it is easy to understand why the school system will continue to favour Kenya as a supplier of managerial labour to the region"
