Gender Discrimination Under the UPE Program - A Ugandan Experience
Girls' Unrecognized Inter-sectional Experiences in School Attendance
Although equal access to Education for all children is a basic human right and an effective way of eradicating poverty, especially for girls, several barriers still hinder girls' full educational participation in Uganda generally.
This book provides an analysis of the intersection of poverty, geographical location and socio-economic factors with gender on the experiences of girls who enrolled in Primary School in Arua District of Uganda under the UPE Program.
The book concludes that although girls are more disadvantaged than boys in as far as gender equity in Education is concerned, the best way to address this is not to halt the one that has an edge but rather to remove everything that serves as an impediment to the freedom and equal opportunities of all children.
