by Sheriff, Ahmed Lamin, Ed.D., Duquesne University, 2015, 102; 3740291
Abstract (Summary)

Socioeconomic inequalities affect the access to affordable and sustainable education in Sierra Leone: Sanda Tendaren Chiefdom. Education is a crucial part of the chiefdom’s development. It has a direct affect on the living standards of the citizens of the chiefdom and a subpar system can negatively impact Chiefdom’s economic development and stunt societal participation in political discourse. If access to affordability and sustainability of education are addressed seriously, the short and long-term impact for Sanda Tendaren chiefdom will be tremendous and lasting. Chiefdom villagers will have access to improved school buildings closer to their homes and education will be affordable for Sanda Tendaren chiefdom citizens regardless of their socioeconomic status. Making education free and fair in Sanda Tendaren chiefdom would result in an immediate increase in enrollment at all levels and reduce gender inequality.
