National Assessment of the Situation of Education in South Sudan

CGA Technologies undertook an Education Needs Assessment on behalf of the Ministry of General Education and Instruction (MoGEI) and the South Sudan Education Cluster (SSEC), co-led by UNICEF and Save the Children. The assessment covered 442 schools providing an overview of the current education situation in South Sudan and a situation analysis of the functioning of South Sudan’s education system, particularly given the impact of over seven years of conflict and displacement as well as the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent interruption of education in South Sudan.

  • Education Needs Assessment South Sudan - 2021

    The findings from the 2021 ENA highlight that most of the education challenges that have been highlighted in previous assessments persist and have been exacerbated by COVID-19 and the subsequent school closures. Many of the challenges noted by county education officials, headteachers, learners, and community members revolve around lack of finances for both the supply and demand side of education (such as families not being able to afford fees for their children to attend schools, or teachers not receiving regular and sufficient salaries).
