From the Guardian's experience in Katine, Uganda (where the newspaper launched a rural development initiative in 2007 with NGO partner Amref) low wages and notably the reluctance for teachers to move to rural communities have compounded the problems faced in providing education in the region. Even with the development intervention in the area, a recent article finds though enrolement in schools is up, the conditions in which pupils are taught is still exteremely poor.http://bit.ly/c1NaIIt would be interesting to hear what recommendations were made at the conference to incentivise teachers to move to rural areas.Thank you.
