UNICEF (with Pum Anh)- A qualitative study on student dropout in primary and secondary education in Lao PDR

Working with the Research Institute of Educational Science (RIES) in the ministry of Education and Sports, and in collaboration with UNCIEF, the Qualitative Study on Student Dropout aims to investigate the reasons behind the increasing rates of dropouts seen in primary and secondary education across the country. In addition to gathering information from informants at school, village and district level, the study will provide practical recommendations for mitigation steps at each level.

The Civitas Team is responsible for developing data gathering tools, collecting data in 6 provinces, conducting data entry and analysis, and contributing to a final report discussing trends across the country and providing recommendations.
