The Quality of the South Sudanese Education
In my own understanding, ‘Quality Education’ is the education that addresses the cultural needs of the citizens of a country in respect to the growing global scientific needs delivered by qualified teachers through participatory learner friendly methods in a conducive environment and caters for all abilities of learners.
Bearing the above meaning of quality education in mind, is the education of South Sudan really a quality education?
To me, a combination of factors works to answer this question. These factors include the curriculum versus the common practices of the South Sudanese, the qualifications of the teachers responsible for delivering this education, the methods they use and the environment in which this education is operating.
First of all,
Is the System of Education in South Sudan addressing the cultural needs of the citizens?
- The curriculum
- The teachers
- The environment
- Many teacher training programmes are designed and managed by Non-governmental organizations based on emergency approach.
- Disciplines related to people’s livelihood are removed.
- Practical aspects removed in science disciplines
- Literature is substandard; no prose and poetry and one novel and play studied from the beginning.
