A study by the National Center for Statistics showed that in Rwanda 42% of children are studying in primary school but they are not where they should be, and 17% are in secondary school where they should not be studying, which is said to be caused by various problems that often come from families, as some students testify, which would make them feel ashamed to study together with younger students.

One said "the reason for this is lack of resources, not all people have the same financial ability, sometimes it is difficult for a child to get school fees, and hence they end up starting school late.

Members of political and gender equality commission in the parliament say that challenge should be solved by the daycare schools.

Hon.  BizimanaMinaniDeogratias said "I thought that it was solved because there are daycares, what is the use of gathering all the children at the start of school? It would be very sad if we have children who do not start school on time and there are daycares".

MrsIrere Claudette, the Secretary of State in the Ministry of Education, says that apart from fighting against malnutrition and stunting growth among children, the education program was established to eliminate such problems even though it was created in the midst of the Covid-19 epidemic.

She further added “it is a problem caused by Covid-19, today we are fighting to pay arrears, but the schools are producing results because they enable children to start school at the right time, in the future, this issue will be solved". 

The ministry of education says that every year at least 10 to 15 thousand children must start primary school because they have the right age to school.
