No doubt the Amadi State schools were greatly affected by the conflict which expanded to Equatoria after 2016 shootout in Juba, followed by exodus from Equatorian states into refugee camps in Uganda; and that may account for the poor performance there. We need peace for all our kids to get back to whatever little education being provide without being threatened with violence and lack of facilities.
