Teacher Accountability

...teacher accountability

Throughout our appeal, we'll be taking time to hear directly from some of the girls we spoke to during our national consultation in Sierra Leone. This fortnight, we're focusing on... TEACHER ACCOUNTABILITY. Hear from teachers Florence, Yelie and Rugiatu on why girls aren't in school and how poor teaching quality and bad practice are major issues for girls' education. 

Florence

Girls’ education is important because when you educate a girl you have educated many people, in fact you have educated the nation.

There are many reasons why girls aren’t in school: lack of materials, death of a parent, child labour, poor teaching methods, secret societies. The main problem is poverty because of poverty the parents cannot afford to send their children to school. Because of poverty the girls have to go out and find money to educate themselves.
