Tanzania Mara Region Case Study Report
Global Initiative on Out-of-School Children
The case study design is adopted to facilitate an in-depth exploration of the out-of-school children (OOSC) children in their own social cultural and economic contexts. The main idea is to examine many features of being out of school and being at risk of dropping out of school by considering a few cases. Cases involved individuals, groups, organizations, events, and geographical units. Thus, the case study examined OOSC and children at risk of dropping out of school in their own social cultural and economic environments.
The objective of this case study is to examine social cultural values and practices that promote or hinder the educational participation of children from geographically or ethnically marginalized groups. The study also aims at analyzing existing curricula to determine the extent to which positive cultural values and practices from marginalized population groups have been embedded to enhance demand for education.
