Donor partners have pledged support to the Government of Sierra Leone and other stakeholders for improved education for the Underprivileged.

 

Sandra Lattouf, said there is need to remove barriers between quality education for most marginalised children, more especially in high school level.

 

Madam Lattouf, the UNICEF Representative, made this statement yesterday 5th April 2017, on behalf of all donor partners at the just concluded two-day Education Mid-Term Workshop held at the Bintumani Hotel in Freetown

 

She informed the gathering that such action is in line with the review.

 

She added that,Sierra Leone needs to focus on improving learning outcomes for all children in primary and secondary schools.

 

“The  review and approval of schools additional teachers, classrooms,  teaching and learning materials need to be looked into,” she noted, adding, this will support increased  learning outcome, “She went on to say it was important to remove barriers for most marginalised children including out-of-school children, children from poor households, girls, children with disabilities and children living in rural areas among others.

 

“Effort needs to be made to reduce the costs of schooling for poor households and to create greater awareness of the values,” said the UNICEF Representative.

 

She said schools needs to be safe with inclusive learning environments for those who   want to attend. She urged stakeholders to increase access to early learning.

 

According to her, it was prudent to unlock the bottlenecks in education financing to enable efficient involvement in teaching and learning, with strong focus on ensuring foundation skills in the early grades.

 

Furthermore, she said a more robust system is required to monitor the sector, accessing performance, improve accountability and enable the government to demonstrate results.

 

“To achieve this, resources allocation mechanism is needed to deliver results and GPE provides one window of opportunity,” she stated.
