EARF Announces a pipeline Research call in the month of March 2017.
This research in context:
Student over-enrolment and high repetition in early primary years is a prevalent trend for many countries in sub-Saharan Africa, including Uganda. However, the true implications of this are often overlooked in policy decisions, but contribute to poor learning outcomes in primary education.
Having robust and context specific evidence on the scale and impact of over-enrolment and high repetition rates in early primary years would not only support DFIDs Uganda’s education sector programming, but directly impact national policy dialogue in Uganda and contribute to the global evidence base on improving learning outcomes in developing countries.
The research will:
For up to £200,000, provide robust evidence on the efficiency of early primary and pre-primary education in Uganda; and how this impacts policy and primary education sector spending at the national level and learning outcomes for all, particularly the poorest populations.
