The Kind Of Education South Sudan Really Needs

"An Education System where quality educational services are delivered on the basis of the problem-based approach and experiential teaching and learning domains in a non-threatening learning environment."

By Abraham Mabior Rioc*

2. An Education system where economically disadvantaged children as well as children from the minority groups have equal access to learning opportunities.
