Lesson we're not learning: iLIVE
It seems as if many pupils spend more time concocting lame excuses than learning how to succeed in life.
I've heard pupils claim they can't go to school because they are hungry, so a feeding scheme was introduced. They continued to drop out, and blamed having to pay school fees.
Now education is free in both primary and secondary schools. In addition, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme is there to help students from poverty-stricken families to study at tertiary level.
Perhaps the real reason for the drop-outs is just plain laziness.
Please guys, let's use education to succeed in life.
