Purpose of the Assignment
The consultancy will assist the Education section in conducting an assessment of textbook availability and use by students and teachers in public primary schools.
The specific objectives of the assessment are to: a) investigate the officially defined processes of how the required numbers of copies of textbooks are supposed to be requested from states, how the textbooks are to be printed and distributed, and how these processes are being undertaken in reality, b) assess availability of textbooks in classrooms and schools and identify factors contributing to unavailability. The findings will inform the government partners to take corrective actions to ensure that all primary school students and teachers have access to required textbooks.
