Adult literacy programs in Uganda by Anthony Okech( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study is to compare, and contrast the resource requirements, and effectiveness of adult literacy programs in Uganda, assess its implementation, and recommend future policy for the development of adult literacy education. The report presents the research, and evaluation background, providing analyses of effectiveness in terms of both the attainment, and retention of reading, writing, and arithmetic skills, including practical knowledge, and attitude changes - particularly, knowledge about HIV/AIDS prevention, and care. It explores the factors affecting the performance of adult education, the costs of activities, and the extent of local commitment under the current socioeconomic conditions. The context of literacy programs in Uganda, and the current state of both government, and nongovernmental organizations' programs, are described, emphasizing on outcomes, and cost-effectiveness, rather than process, or methodology. Conclusions suggest that while the programs are helping the government in redressing the imbalance of educational opportunities, namely between men and women, these programs are nonetheless in danger of missing their primary target, i.e., the people who have had no schooling. Furthermore, the average level of attainment is very limited, revealing the quality of implementation is the major explanation for the variations in learners' attainments. Recommendations suggest consistency in policy, to ensure reconciliation between decentralization, and the priority for universal literacy

Adult Literacy Programs in Ug anda. Africa Region Human Development Series by Anthony Okech( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report evaluates the outcomes and cost effectiveness of adult literacy programs in Ugandan villages and compares government programs with those provided by nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Part 1 describes evaluation objectives, government and ngo literacy programs and the rural socioeconomic context, and evaluation design. About 100 program graduates and control samples were tested and interviewed in each of eight districts. Instructors and village leaders were interviewed, and focus groups were conducted. Part 2 examines learner characteristics, socioeconomic indicators, access to urban areas, participation in literacy programs, attitudes, and experiences in class; literacy centers and availability of materials; instructor characteristics, training, and attitudes; and supervision quality. Parts 3-4 present program outcomes, conclusions, and recommendations. The main conclusions are: (1) since most participants are women, the programs are helping to redress the gender imbalance in educational opportunities; (2) the programs may be missing their primary clients--people with no schooling; (3) decentralization may be undermining incentives and accountability at the local level; (4) most participants had attained levels of reading, writing, and numeracy higher than grade 4, but average attainment was very limited; (5) learner attainments varied with quality of implementation; (6) graduates increased their participation in community governance, improved their health practices, and established successful income-generating activities; (7) similar outcomes were found for government and ngo programs; (8) literacy materials varied in quality and availability; (9) instructors in government programs had little schooling and training, and supervision was dismal in most places; and (10) unit costs were about $4.50 per year (U.S. dollars) but would rise to about $13.00 per year if steps were taken to ensure sustainability. A final chapter by John Oxenham discusses wider implications for the adult education profession. (Contains 53 references and 59 data tables.) (Sv)
