It speaks on the low gross enrolment ratio which is impediment to the economic growth of the country. Written in a lucid and vivid manner, the reader travels from the past to the present and emerges to the future. As one comes to an end, the reader is influenced to being about a change in the education sector to bring about quality in education.
