Solomon Islands: Summary Report. Educational Experience Survey: Education, Language and Literacy Experience. Asia-South Pacific Education Watch

The Education Watch initiative is being implemented in the Solomon Islands by the Coalition on Education Solomon Islands (COESI) in partnership with Asian South Pacific Bureau of Adult Education (ASPBAE). COESI aims to generate a reliable body of information that will: (1) Accurately explain how much the national government has done and can do to meet the goal of educating the community; and (2) Provide a firm basis for community participation in policy advocacy and program development. The Educational Experience Survey is a key element of the Education Watch initiative. Developed by ASPBAE and COESI in collaboration with the Papua New Guinea Education Advocacy Network (PEAN), it was designed to collect accurate and statistically significant information about educational, language, and literacy experience at the village and individual levels in selected communities in Honiara and Malaita. The survey was conducted using a two-stage systematic sampling method in Honiara and Malaita provinces from November 2006 to March 2007, with 2,200 people between the ages of 15 and 60 years interviewed. This report summarizes the main findings of the survey. While the survey was conducted in only two provinces, the findings and implications apply to the whole of the Solomon Islands. Still, one immediate need that emerged from the survey is for an extended study to include other provinces. Such a study needs to be done on a regular basis so that trends and progress can be tracked over time. There is potential also for the survey to be adapted to examine a wide range of educational issues in greater detail. (Contains 5 endnotes.)
