Mother’s Education Level Critical In Child’s Academic Performance – Report
According to a new study, a mother’s level of education is crucial in determining her children’s academic performance.
According to new findings from assessments of Grade Four learners using the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC), 62% of these children could also solve a Grade Three appropriate numeracy problem.
The information is contained in UsawaAgenda’s latest Uwezo Learning Assessment report for 2021, which was released on Friday. ‘Are Our Children Learning?’ is the title of the report.
Grade Four children whose mothers had a tertiary education were 80% more likely to perform well in Grade Three reading work.
‘‘This tells us that if we do not educate the girls today, we will not be able to educate all children in future, the level of the mother is critical for the ability of the child to learn,“ said Usawa Agenda’s Executive Director Dr Emmanuel Manyasa.
The evaluation focused on children’s ability to read and comprehend English and Kiswahili, as well as complete basic numeracy tasks at the Grade Three level.
The survey also administered various tests to students in classes 5 – 8 set at the Class Five level.
‘‘We have to build back better and for you to do that you need evidence. This will help education stakeholders and government to see what are the gaps and what can we do to build back better,’’ he explained.
However, the report concentrated on Grade Four students who were expected to have completed Grade Three level work by the time of the assessment.
According to the report, only two out of every five Grade 4 students meet or exceed expectations when reading a Grade 3 appropriate English text.
