The Importance of a Question

 

During our last teacher development workshop in Iganga district, the teachers of 15 schools in Iganga district discussed issues that were barriers to teaching and learning. No, the barriers were not ones that teachers in most schools would identify- lack of school supplies, smaller teacher-student ratios, etc. The barriers that these teachers identified ranged from how many meals families and the students had in a day, what the primary source of water was, early marriage, how often women and girls were physically abused, which of the following was the most common form of abuse: child labor, kidnapping, rape, denying education, beating/caning, stalking, and on for 10 pages of questions. In 15 communities in Iganga, surveys are now being conducted by the teachers to pinpoint the most prevalent barriers to education. It is our hope that once we analyze the data, we can provide the necessary interventions needed in these communities, using the power of teacher leaders as advocates for change. We thank you for continuing to support our efforts and hope to share some data in our next report!
