Despite of a shortage of approximately 27 000 science teachers, more than 5,500 foreign teachers have been expelled from Tanzania following a decision taken by government to kick illegal immigrants out of the country. Many private schools in the country could not afford the Sh5 million ($2,500) work permit. The teachers were among 6,000 foreigners who had been hired to work in private schools across Tanzania.

These private schools are the best schools since recent secondary school results showed that none of the government schools is in the top 10 of the best schools. Further results showed that only 20% of the students passed with more than a level D, 40% passed with level D and 40% failed (in Dutch terms level D is a 5, fail is lower than level D)
