Education: South Asia's foundation for the future - SADF
This policy brief by our partner, South Asia Democratic Forum (SADF) based in Brussels, analyses the current state of basic education in South Asia and the different areas that require attention to improve it. The study focuses in particular in three key areas: the impediments to school inscription and attendance; the teachers’ role for quality education; the ideology in education, in particular religion and nationalism. The policy brief argues that the quality of schools rather than attendance is the main issue to be addressed. For this, teachers are fundamental. Likewise, the content of what is being taught must also be revised in order to promote a tolerant and inclusive world vision.
