The Addis Abeba Education Bureau said it will connect all secondary schools in the metropolises with the Schoolnet programme this academic year. About "2,500 computers have already been purchased at a cost of 23 million Br to connect the schools," Bureau head, Delamo Otore, said.

The connection would encourage interaction among teachers and students of secondary schools as well as helps students to benefit from computer networking, among others, according to Delamo.

Owing to the efforts made to maintain education quality, the Bureau deployed BA degree holder teachers beginning from grades 5-10 and MA degree holder teachers at preparatory schools, he said. Secondary, primary and kindergarten education coverage in the metropolis has reached to 80pc, 105pc and 93.5pc, respectively, he said.
