He has however bemoaned the shortage of staff in many schools especially those in rural areas, despite staff being ready for the new curriculum.

Mr. Muyembe said, there is need for the Ministry of Education to complete the distribution of the revised books soon especially to schools in rural areas as they are the most affected by poor transport system.

Government through the Ministry of Education and with the help of USAID in the year 2014 revised the curriculum which was in an effort to increase the performance of pupils.
