Challenges and Solutions in Advancing Sierra Leone's Education System for Human Development
Abstract: The primary objective of this study is to examine the various obstacles encountered by Sierra Leone, a developing nation in West Africa, in its pursuit of attaining high-quality education. This report presents a thorough analysis of Sierra Leone's education system by integrating literature research and data analysis. The importance of education in promoting economic progress and societal development in rising nations, such as Sierra Leone, cannot be overstated. The acquisition of knowledge and skills through formal education has been a crucial factor in shaping Sierra Leone's development priorities. Nevertheless, the nation encounters numerous obstacles in its endeavours to attain extensive accessibility to education of superior quality. The challenges encompass a lack of adequate enrollment rates, disparities in educational opportunities between genders, and the enduring repercussions of a tumultuous civil conflict on the educational framework. A significant influence from the World Bank and IMF may also be seen in Sierra Leone's classrooms. The goal of this study is to examine the current situation of education in Sierra Leone, identify contributing factors, and propose solutions to the problems it reveals.
