The Problem

The current passing rate at the secondary school exit exams is pathetic - with a 70% failure rate, and a meagre 39% pass rate in Mathematics and English language being reported in the Senior School WAEC/NECO.

What will become of this mass of students in the future who are neither fit for further education in the university nor employable. Every year, Nigeria produces a mass of functional illiterates who can barely read or write.
