With the launch of the electronic registration system (PReM) for students in public and private primary schools, major reforms have been ushered in the education sector in Tanzania. The Permanent Secretary in the ministry of education, science and technology unveiled the system in Dar es Salaam and tasked the board to expand it to cover secondary schools and institutions of higher learning.

PReM was funded by the Numeracy Education Support Program through GPE in coordination with the government of Sweden.
