Did Tanzania Achieve the Second Millennium Development Goal? Statistical Analysis
Magoti, Edwin
Journal of Education and Practice, v7 n8 p58-69 2016
Development Goal "Achieve universal primary education", the challenges faced, along with the way forward towards achieving the fourth Sustainable Development Goal "Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all". Statistics show that Tanzania has made very promising steps towards achieving this goal. Gross Enrollment Ratio decreased from 106.4% in 2010 to 96.16% in 2013 with Net Enrollment Ratio averaging 93.7%. However, Gross and Net Enrollment ratio for pre-primary pupil was not promising, the figures stood at 33.5% and 33.3% respectively. The most notable challenges were dropouts, inadequate teaching and learning materials, shortage of teachers and unconducive learning atmosphere in some places, especially in rural areas. For effective and successful implementation of the 2030 Sustainable development agenda on education, this paper suggest; Enrolling Primary School pupils at right age; Providing education that focuses on Outcome and not on Output; Creating Conducive Learning atmosphere well vested with materials, financial and human resources; Employment based on academic and pedagogical competence; Integration of ICT in the Teaching and Learning Process and Accreditation/Approval of learning institutions bases on well-defined standards.
