A step back: The impact of the recent crisis on education in Central African Republic

CAR Education ClusterUNICEFCooperazione Internazionale (COOPI)Danish Refugee Council (DRC)2013

This report analyzes the effect that military and rebel violence and the subsequent coup d'etat in 2013 have had on education in the Central African Republic. UNICEF and partner organizations used a sampling strategy to conduct key informant interviews with school directors, superintendents, teachers, parents, and village chiefs in 176 different schools across 11 regions. This study found that a majority (86%) of all schools closed at least once since violence erupted and nearly half (49%) remained closed at the time of observation in August. About 70% of students and nearly 40% of teachers were still absent, with fear of violence and lack of security cited as the primary obstacles to education.
