Unlocking Educational Potential

Insights from Côte d’Ivoire

In the latest Policy Brief by UNICEF, the focus shifts to Côte d’Ivoire, unveiling crucial factors influencing school performance. The research dives deep into the impact of school kits and textbooks on student retention and exam success.

Key findings reveal that while progress has been made in providing school kits and textbooks, challenges persist, particularly in rural areas. Uneven distribution of resources among schools poses a significant hurdle, with disparities evident in access to essential materials like mathematics and French textbooks.

Despite governmental efforts to enhance education through reforms, access, equity, and quality issues endure. However, amidst these challenges, some schools demonstrate remarkable success. Termed as “positive deviant schools,” these institutions provide valuable insights into effective practices that could drive broader improvements.

The research underscores the critical importance of equitable distribution of resources. It suggests extending effective policies like free distribution of school kits to all schools and ensuring every student has access to textbooks, which could notably enhance learning outcomes.

This brief is the inaugural installment in a series aimed at informing policy dialogues not only in Côte d’Ivoire but also in other relevant contexts. It offers a glimpse into ongoing efforts to bolster education in the region, fostering collaboration between governmental bodies, NGOs, and international organizations.
