I feel proud to see you (a fellow African) leading in terms of creating useful content for this framework. I was just wondering what are the possibilities of using this framework to create a custom centralized school management system for an entire country?

Thank you Luka,

The framework is robust! It can create the system. Good news is, there is already a school application to give you the starting structure. Management of other sections of the school like accounts, HR, etc is also taken care of. I fully recommend.
