Ghana School Feeding for Rural Poverty Reduction: A Qualitative Exploratory Case Study is second edition to Ghana School Feeding for Rural Poverty Reduction. The revision in title is to emphasize the scholarly orientation of the book to the academic community without compromising on its social policy appeal. The book reflects findings from the qualitative exploratory case study research into activities of the Ghana School Feeding Program (GSFP) at a designated rural community public basic school situated within the Greater Accra region of Ghana. Content analysis of data from the GSFP secretariat supported with interview data, confirmed steady improvement in school outcomes of enrollment, attendance, retention, and literacy (English Language and Mathematics test scores), and challenged realization of socioeconomic benefits of nutrition, food production, and security. Lack of community awareness and support for activities of the GSFP that undermine achievement of the objective of increased local food production and government's delayed payment to caterers were challenges identified by participants that needed to be addressed to ensure program success.
Achievement is tantamount to educators. Middle school is a time of transition, when students develop faster than any other time in their lives. Middle school achievement tends to fall after elementary school, but this is often the first time students have had access to exploratory content outside of the core curriculum. This study of Colorado middle schools and accountability reports from the school year 2003-2004 attempts to identify and examine factors that affect student achievement as defined by the school s score on the Colorado Department of Education School Accountability Report, including exploratory courses offered, daily attendance rate, enrollment stability rate, discipline incidents reported, and free and reduced lunch rate. While exploratory course information does not add predictability to the model of achievement, slight correlations with achievement were noted, and larger correlations between other factors and achievement were seen.
The UN Millennium development declaration, which incorporated the goal of achieving universal access to primary education, is the current existing opportunity for children in developing countries. The Ethiopian government is committed to achieve universal access to primary education by 2015.As a result, the country has experienced dramatic increase in primary school enrollment since 1994.However, despite such tremendous achievement in enrollments, the study by the world Bank (2005) revealed that in the absence of concerted effort and additional interventions, attaining universal primary education by 2015 is beyond the reach of Ethiopia. Among other things, the bank suggested for additional interventions to be made in urban areas in relation to reducing pupil-teacher ratio, increasing the deployment of female teachers, improving the school infrastructural development and social protection programs. With this background and by taking into account the involvement of NGOs into economic and social life of the country since the 20th century, this study has assessed the assistance made by NGOs to primary school completion in Addis Ababa.
Even though Ethiopia is amongst the poorest and educationally most disadvantaged countries in the world as a result of change in the government in 1991, a new education and training sector was declared in April 1994. Because of this, the number of primary schools has grown over the last five years and enrollment of students has increased. Although this seems a remarkable growth, female students in rural Ethiopia invariably encounter different problems in attending school. Therefore, the study was focused on the issue related to the problems of female in primary education and investigates the factors that affect their education in the study area. Hence, the results of this study provide clearly the real situation of females' education and the problem that hinder them from access to education. As a result, this study contribute significantly for further study in the future as well as providing recommendation about expanding and retaining female students in primary school for policy makers and planners that contribute for designing relevant strategies for narrowing the gender gap in education.
Throughout the process of an evolving educational system, student achievement has been impacted by the demands of accreditation. Accreditation standards often have been driven by accountability and reform movements, which are dictated and guided by educational law and policy. The criteria by which educational systems have been evaluated has been modified in response to the formulation of new policies and laws. This research consists of comparing the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools accreditation processes with those of the Association of Christian Schools International. Criterion-based accreditation models are compared to open-ended systems. Student performance trends and issues include assessment and accountability, dropout and graduation rates, academic readiness for higher education, standardized testing, grade inflation, dual enrollment, advanced placement, and historical averages of the SAT and ACT. The Impact of Significant Shifts is a book that traces the historical events, educational trends, and legislative policies that have impacted accreditation processes and influenced student performance.
Most Nigerian farmers are ageing. A critical challenge for sustainable agricultural and rural development in Nigeria has remained how to mobilize her large population of youths (about 45%) as active participants in the agricultural transformation process. Most Nigerian youths appears to be negatively disposed towards electing agriculture as a course of study or as a vocation. It is imperative to constantly assess students'attitudes because the link between attitude, subject enrollment, and achievement has been sustained by research. The book presents the nitty gritty of the processes involved in development, validation and standardization of semantic differential scales for measurement of students' attitude to agricultural science.Preliminary utilization of the scales indicates that the instrument validly predict students' achievement in and choice of agriculture as a course of study or vocation.The book should be especially useful to Guidance Counsellors, Science Educators, Measurement and Evaluation Trainees and Professionals, Curriculum Planners, Researchers and anyone else who may be interested in taking objective classification,selection and placement decisions about students.
In the past 30 years, the inspiring progress of the basic education in China has attracted global attention, not merely for China's determination of developing national education, but for the workable strategies adopted by the Chinese government to implement the right to education as well. The achievement of expanding education to all children for minimum of nine years in China, to a certain extent, is a quantitative triumph of universal access to basic education. However, beyond the statistical victory of enrollment in schools, the increasing disparity of access to good quality education among different social groups remains the biggest challenge for China to fully meet the requirement of right to education in the international human rights treaties. This work attempts to explore the factors related to policy-making, institutional governance and legal protection, which may result in the gaps in qualitative development of the basic education in China. The purpose of the research is not only to address the current problems existing in the field of basic education, but also to explore the adoptable measures to further improve the enjoyment of the right to education in China.
