It’s been a bit longer between entries than I would have liked, but I have been incredibly busy with data analysis and report writing. “Where did the time go?” is a question I’ve been asking myself quite a bit lately. It’s also a question that came up during the data analysis.
When I returned from Jinja, one of my colleagues helped me code the data. We covered charts with notes and taped them to the walls of my shared office. We circled and labeled things. And with every day of analysis, we seemed to have more work to do. I was both amazed this had all happened in less than three months, but also terrified time had gone by so quickly!
Here is a summary of the findings from the report:
|Research Objective||Summarized Findings|
|Causes of Repetition and Dropout||
|Perception towards gender and girls’ education||
Those that are negative tend to be negative toward education in general, not just for girls
|Strategies to reduce repetition and dropout||
A minority stated using peer groups and outside stakeholders to address the community at large and also policy regulations
|Effects of repetition on children’s learning and retention||
|Policy awareness regarding gender and girls’ education in Uganda||
I am still currently in the editing phase of the report. It has been a busy couple weeks but exciting as well. Thanks for still reading!
Also, I made this fantastic flow chart:
