Chad has one of the highest learning poverty rates in the world: 94% of children aged 10 cannot read a simple, age-appropriate text.
Chad's education system is impacted by high population growth, lack of financial resources, poverty, conflict, regional insecurity leading to population displacement, and the implications of climate change.
To build a resilient system, the government is working with GPE and other partners to transform the quality and service delivery of teachers in a way that increases equitable access to quality education and ensures the success of basic education, especially for girls and the most vulnerable children.
As outlined in Chad’s Partnership Compact, improving teacher professional development is expected to raise the level of mastery by teachers in both content and didactics.
Teacher management will be optimized through fairer processes, enhanced motivation and attention to gender parity.
Chad also aims to improve critical factors for better learning, including data on the characteristics of children enrolled and to be enrolled, stronger articulation between fundamental learning and social and ecological skills, and provision of appropriate infrastructure and equipment for a safe school environment.
A focus on girls’ education seeks to tackle barriers ranging from social norms to health, social protection and inclusion.
