The Former Aspirant Member of Parliament on the Independent ticket,
Simon Agaba, has attributed the poor performance of schools in Ndorwa
west constituency in Last year’s Primary Leaving Examinations-PLE, to
inadequate support by government.

Agaba made the remarks yesterday, while speaking to our reporter at
his home in Bushuro parish of Kitumba Sub County in Kabale District.

He observed that schools especially those aided by government have
increasingly performed poorly, due to government’s failure to
construction houses for teachers, increasing on teacher’s salaries and
failure to construct enough class rooms among others.

In the 2017 PLE exams, the worst performing schools in Kabale district
were from Ndorwa West constituency.

They are; Rwemihanga primary school in Rubaya Sub County, which registered 11 ungraded Candidates,
2 candidates in the fourth grade, 5 third grades and only one
candidate in grade two, out 19 candidates.

It was followed by Bwama
primary school in Kitumba Sub County that registered, 19 candidates
ungraded candidates, 8 candidates in the fourth grade, 6 in third, and
only two in second grade out of 35 candidates, who sat for the exams.
