  1. Its a challenge for all of us in Nausori….. parents , teachers, religious organisations and other social groups.Its a rather shameful reality. Just a request to NASAAC. Nausori is a very big District and I believe has the biggest student population.Can the data be given percentage wise? That will also help people in smaller districts especially those mostly in rural areas be aware of this real issue.
