1.2 Rapid Assessment of the School Grant Programme (SGP–2009)
Client: The Ministry of Education
Objective of the study: The Ethiopian Government has launched a project designed to improve the quality of education. This project is known as: General Education Quality Improvement Programme (GEQIP). One of the strategies the government is employing to ensure the success of GEQIP is improving the teaching- learning environment in schools through a scheme known as the School Improvement Programme (SIP). This is to be achieved by directly granting funds to schools and to Adult Basic Education Centers with which they could create conditions that would enable them to provide quality education. The objective of this assessment is then to review and conduct a SLOT analysis on the disbursement of the School Grant fund at the federal, regional and wereda level and its utilization at the school levels.
