Education Research in Africa?

I am a great believer in qualitative school based research for improving classroom processes leading to improved learning outcomes. However , in African countries this type of research is lacking. In another post I will elaborate on this.

For now, it is worth supporting any form of  education research and the  Journal of Educational Research in Africa is certainly worth a look:

Journal of Educational Research in Africa (JERA) – No. 4, 2012
Educational Research Network for West and Central Africa (ERNWACA)

ERNWACA presents the fourth volume (4) of JERA/RARE based on its initial spirit of not only enabling the African voices to be heard as it endeavours to assume leadership in research but also to sustain the conversations to cover not only education but the social sector as a whole.

This special volume presents the findings from transnational study on decentralization in the social sector in the domains of education, health and water, which are key issues in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the Education for All (EFA) addressing the critical issues of equity, poverty and quality.
