SSEC-Nation_Wide_Assessment_Report- 2018-10

The objectives of the assessment were mainly to: • provide education actors, humanitarian partners and donors with updated key indicators on the functioning of the education system so as to inform coordination and programming; • support proposal development and advocacy documents to increase financing for the sector; • enable prioritisation across geographic and thematic areas according to needs and risks; • And provide recommendations on most effective activities to resume education in a safe and sustained way.
The methodology used was primary data collection whereby questionnaires were administered to two sets of respondents: head teachers in sampled primary schools across the nation; and County Education Directors in all the county education level and secondary data. Simple random sampling (randomization via excel sheet) was used to arrive at a sample of 400 schools
Key findings: 
From the findings of the assessment, the study discovered that the major challenges plaguing South Sudan’s primary schools include: • the non-functionality of schools at the national level due to insecurity; • school closures; • the interruption of education days during the school year; • attacks on School; • limited accessibility to the schools and remoteness; poor school infrastructure, • limited availability of WASH facilities and soap in schools, • Low enrolment and attendance rates; and high drop-out rates.
