Burkina faso study on ge july 2007

Burkina Faso: Study on GE July 2007

  • Study: Identification of persistent obstacles to girls’ education, access, retention and achievement.

  • UN in collaboration with the Ministry of Education. Study carried out in the 12 provinces with the largest gender disparities in education

  • The study reiterated the following issues creating an obstacle towards girls’ education:

    • Lack of a sound national policy that addresses free education and better integration of excluded children, particularly girls

    • Traditional belief and practices continued in families (social role of girls, early marriage..)

    • Low capacities on how to address the issue of gender equality in education. E,g. the local management committees and PTAs have a large impact on the school structure and its management and could have played a stronger role to advance the issue of getting girls to school

    • The school itself is not providing an education that is gender responsive and the issue of security is pertinent for parents, particularly in terms of transition to secondary education (Maison communautaires des filles)
