In Northern Uganda, there are many barriers to children receiving a quality start to their education. In designing approaches to addressing these barriers, the role of children’s first educator, the parent, are often overlooked. While many projects seek to encourage parents to commit finances to their children’s education, parent’s role as an educator and active participant in learning is often under-addressed.
Dr. Alison Clark, researcher in Early Childhood Education at UCL Institute of Education, and Stellah Tumwebaze, Executive Director of LABE, will discuss approaches, benefits, and challenges of parental involvement in mother tongue and early childhood education programmes supported by LABE and AET within rural communities in Northern Uganda.
Date: Wednesday 24 February 2015
Time: 11:00 am – 12:00 pm GMT
Panelists: Dr. Alison Clark and Stellah Tumwebaze
