Tony Elumelu Entrepreneur, Allan Ong’ang’a is a beneficiary of the Kenyan education system. Growing up, he says classes were always packed and sometimes students had to squeeze in up to three people per desk. The system was exam-based and teachers were more concerned about covering the syllabus rather than making sure students had good grasp of the concepts. For students who were never blessed with sharp memory and agile intellects, it was a ticket to despair. The system has not changed much more than 20 years later. Taking his children to school last year made him realize that the approach needed a re-think.
