Evaluation à distance - “Un saut dans l’inconnu : état de l’éducation en RCA”

Humanitarian Response 11 April 2014

Rapport
Le Cluster Education RCA a publié un rapport qui analyse les résultats de l’enquête à distance effectuée en février 2014 avec 355 écoles centrafricaines, soit 14.5% des écoles primaires à travers toutes les préfectures du pays.Les résultats montrent que 65% des écoles enquêtées restaient toujours fermées à la mi-février. Depuis le début de l’année scolaire 2013-2014, la période d’ouverture des écoles est estimée à une moyenne de seulement 4 semaines. Entre autres, la violence et les mouvements constants de populations sont les deux facteurs importants qui empêchent le retour des élèves aux écoles.Par conséquent, l’ensemble des jeunes générations centrafricaines risquent d’être privées de l’éducation, susceptibles de produire des conséquences graves sur la stabilité et le développement du pays à long terme.

Global Partnership for Education 4 July 2013

Out of School Children: Data Challenges in Measuring Access to Education

Education Policy and Data Center 4 July 2013

1 July 2013 - Large scale estimates of out of school children- such as ones issued and regularly revised by UNESCO, are often taken at face value, without sensitivity to the extent of missing and incomplete information for a large number of countries, which affects the precision of regional and global aggregates.  In addition, grey areas surrounding the definitions of primary school, non-formal education, and the target populations contribute to inconsistencies in cross-national measurement of the number of out of school children.
