False promises in the Tanzanian education sector

by Daniel El-Noshokaty
In January 2016, school fees for secondary school in Tanzania were remitted after the previous waiver of school fees at primary schools in 2011. This is an essential step towards the enabling of free education within the biggest country of east Africa. Nevertheless, 1,5 Million adolescents in Tanzania are still not going to school. The reasons for missing school attendance are diverse and some of them can be traced back to actual decisions of president Magufuli.
