Currently, the people of this country are subjected to everyday violent activities like shooting, slaughter,  torture, mob lynching, bomb explosion, burning amongst others. This factor alone has hurt the educational system of the country ever since it began in 2012. 

The UN has tried to boost the educational system of the country but it has not been yielding as even the government have not been giving the right funding and allocation for the country’s education hence the inadequate provision of learning materials for students and inconsistent payment of teacher’s salary has led to a drastic fall in the academic standard of the country.

This is so dangerous as even little children have the wrong morals instilled in them.

6. Latvia

That means you do not have to study hard in the institution in this country once you have good handwriting and when the teacher is in a good mood, you are capable of earning a good grade. This would affect the students when they go out and are faced with greater challenges.  The country has greatly discouraged the students as students who study hard would fail if the teacher is so not in a good mood at the time of the tests and exams and also if they have poor or average handwriting.
