In the 2019 West African Senior School Examination (WASSCE), Sierra Leone’s national pass rate was an appalling 3.7%. This means that over 96% of all students who took the exam failed to obtain the 5 credits (including English Language and Mathematics) required for entering university.
Although poor public examination results are not a comprehensive proxy for measuring student performance and learning outcomes, they hint at the scale of the educational challenges in Sierra Leone. The underlining problems that led to the poor performance is a combination of poor classroom instruction, lack of quality teacher training and a lack of quality learning resources in and out of schools among other issues. EduGo is focused on addressing these core problems.
