EdTech in Sierra Leone: A Rapid Scan (Country Scan No. 3)Mullan, J., & Taddese, A. - 2020 - EdTech Hub
EdTech Hub country scans explore factors that enable and hinder the use of technology in education. This includes policies, government leadership, private sector partnerships, and digital infrastructure for education. The scans are intended to be comprehensive but are by no means exhaustive; nonetheless, we hope they will serve as a useful starting point for more in-depth discussions about opportunities and barriers in EdTech in specific countries and in this case, in Sierra Leone. This...

The Government of Sierra Leone’s new Medium-term National Development Plan (MTNDP) 2019–2023 has been founded on a strong political commitment to deliver devel-opment results that would improve the welfare of Sierra Leone’s citizens.

Sierra Leone: The power of great teaching in times of crisis | Stories of changeGlobal Partnership for Education - n.d.
The Ebola crisis that plagued Sierra Leone in 2014-2016 had an unexpected positive consequence: giving learners access to the country’s best teachers through an innovative radio educational program. This experience served the country well when the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
The Sierra Leone Teachers Union: Labor in a Post-Conflict SocietyAmman, J., & O’Donnell, J. - 2011 - WorkingUSA, 14(1), 57–71
The Sierra Leone Teachers Union (SLTU) has long played an important role in the country's education system and its labor movement. With more than 30,000 members, the SLTU is the largest and perhaps the most powerful union in Sierra Leone today. Nonetheless, the union struggles with challenges unheard of in developed countries. It represents teachers in an education system that was ravished by its eleven-year civil war (1991 to 2002). Not only are working conditions extremely difficult for...

Sierra Leone : Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper-Progress Report (2005-2007) (No. 08/250)International Monetary Fund - 2008
This report describes the progress made in implementing the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper for Sierra Leone covering the period 2005–07. Efforts to reform the public sector were not successful.

A Senior Executive Service program was also developed but government and development partners could not agree on an implementation strategy and therefore...

‘Without Education You Can Never Become President’: Teenage Pregnancy and Pseudo-empowerment in Post-Ebola Sierra LeoneMenzel, A. - 2019 - Journal of Intervention and Statebuilding, 13(4), 440–458
This article analyses the emergence of ‘teenage pregnancy’ as a new policy focus in post-Ebola Sierra Leone and explores how Sierra Leoneans interpret the problem of ‘teenage pregnancy’. I argue that the new policy focus is not indicative of changing or new problems. Rather, ‘teenage pregnancy’ has created opportunities for donors and the Government of Sierra Leone to continue cooperation in gender politics. At the same time, Sierra Leoneans are clearly concerned about ‘teenage pregnancy’,...
Does living in a community with more educated mothers enhance children’s school attendance? Evidence from Sierra LeoneKamanda, M., Madise, N., & Schnepf, S. - 2016 - International Journal of Educational Development, 46, 114–124
In Sierra Leone girls are 23.4% less likely to attend secondary education than boys. This difference between sexes increases the gender gap in educational attainment since women's education is positively associated with children's educational wellbeing. This paper investigates the relationship between children's school attendance, their mothers’ level of education, as well as the overall level of women's education at the community level in Sierra Leone using multilevel statistical modelling...

Understanding Sierra Leonean and Liberian teachers’ views on discussing past wars in their classroomsShepler, S., & Williams, J. H. - 2017 - Comparative Education, 53(3), 418–441
Various curricular and textbook initiatives exist to aid in the national processes of coming to terms with past violence, often serving the political goals of the victors, sometimes supported by international transitional justice institutions. Sierra Leone and Liberia each experienced a devastating civil war during the 1990s and into the 2000s, and each is struggling to rebuild shattered education systems. In addition, each country has experienced a set of post-conflict transitional justice...

School Leaders’ Preferences on School Location in Sierra Leone: An individual and school-level study [Technical Report]Espinoza-Revollo, P., Ramirez, A., Atherton, P., & Mackintosh, A. - 2022 - EdTech Hub
Attracting qualified teachers to remote areas is a challenge in Sierra Leone. The pupil-to-qualified-teacher ratio in rural areas is 76:1, rising to 83:1 for schools located more than 15 km away from urban centres — well above the national target of 40:1. As equitable teacher deployment is crucial to ensure high-quality education, the Teaching Service Commission (TSC) aims to increase the deployment of qualified teachers to the most remote areas of the country. This paper describes a...
