This report presents the 2012 findings of Uwezo at Twaweza, Africa’s largest survey of basic literacy and numeracy. The results are not good. This is Uwezo third annual report, and little has changed over the past years. In Standard 3 only one out of four children have Standard 2 level literacy in Kiswahili and only four in ten have Standard 2 numeracy skills. In English the picture is worse: less than one out of ten children have basic English literacy skills. By Standard 7, the last year of primary school, half of the pupils still cannot read and comprehend a Standard 2 level English story.
