How Sierra Leone is betting on data to fight the impact of climate change on schoolsMomoh, A., & Atherton, P. - 2022 - Global Partnership for Education
Data can significantly improve decision-making and allow for prioritizing interventions to benefit the most vulnerable populations. That’s why the ministry of Education in Sierra Leone is working with Fab Inc. to develop a web-based data tool that helps estimate and prioritize where new schools are really needed.
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...

School-to-School Mobility Patterns and Retention Rates of Payroll Teachers in Sierra Leone (Working Paper No. 48)Espinoza-Revollo, P., Ali, Y., Garrod, O., … Haßler, B. - 2023 - EdTech Hub
This report is one of several on the research project on the Impact of GIS-Supported Teacher Allocation in Sierra Leone. Recent studies from this series have shown that being put on the government payroll can incentivise teachers to relocate to remote areas of the country. There is a concern, however, that being put on the payroll does not necessarily ensure the retention of teachers in these areas and that teachers will soon move to locations they consider more favourable. As there is no...
Where do teachers go, and where do they stay?Lurvink, A.-F., Espinoza-Revollo, P., Ali, Y., … Godwin, A.-F. L., Patricia Espinoza-Revollo, Yusuf Ali, Oliver Garrod, Paul Atherton, Alasdair Mackintosh, Ana Ramirez, Iman Beoku-Betts, Björn Haßler and Katie - 2023, March 22 - EdTech Hub
In Sierra Leone, a government payroll position is tied to the teacher, not the school, meaning teachers can change schools once they go on the payroll. This leads to certain schools being chronically understaffed. It also suggests that deploying teachers to rural and understaffed schools (or putting teachers already there on payroll) might not tackle high pupil-to-qualified-teacher ratios in the longer term. Investigating the school-to-school movement of payroll teachers can help us...
