A mixed-method approach was used using survey questionnaire as a tool to investigate, how lack of research-based education and its absence in schools affect students’ performance when they reach higher education. The findings suggests that students and teachers are of this view that introducing RBE in schools will benefit students’ academic performance in science as well their overall well being, along with these teachers training, lack of resources and traditional rote learning appears to be major impediments to perpetuate and cultivate practice of RBE in schools. As for the time it appears that institutions are oblivious to the needs of students and global trends that are shaping today’s world of knowledge.
