Researching educational barriers for rural secondary school girls in Tajikistan and efforts to overcome them

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the number of rural girls in Tajikistan who drop out of school after grade 9 or attend school irregularly has been increasing at an alarming rate. In 2006, a two-year Girls’ Education Project (GEP) was implemented using a holistic approach in select rural communities to identify and address challenges within the family, school and community that limit girls’ educational opportunities and experiences. This paper provides a reflection on barriers to schooling for rural secondary school girls as well as the attempts to address these challenges by comparing the experiences of girls at schools that implemented the GEP with the experiences of girls at schools that did not. The main questions are as follows: Why are so many rural girls leaving school after grade 9 or attending irregularly? How are the challenges to girls’ schooling perceived and addressed by headmasters, teachers, and parent-teacher committees at GEP and non-GEP schools?
