People cannot expect the high school system to deliver 100 percent pass rate.
During the Head Teacher Annual conference, Dr Mahendra Reddy says not having a 100 percent pass rate from year eight to move up to year nine will make things harder for secondary schools.
“So while we have made compulsory progression, we just can’t pass on incomplete, half-baked product and demand that they deliver one hundred percent pass.
Dr Reddy says no matter how many extra classes a secondary school teacher provides, the student will not gain the knowledge needed at that level as the fundamental and foundation are missing.
He reiterated that they have to raise the bar and see how students can do well in school.
