Never again: educational reconstruction in Rwanda
This study documents the strategies of the management of education in Rwanda since the 1994 war and genocide. It is intended to be read alongside Lyndsay Bird’s study (2003) on the management of Rwandan refugees’ education – Surviving school: education for refugee children from Rwanda 1994-1996 , also published by UNESCO-IIEP in this series. Never again covers the provision of education for the people of Rwanda, including internally displaced persons and returning refugees. It emphasizes the work of the Ministry of Education in reconstructing the education system. It also analyzes Rwanda’s educational objectives and describes the education system before 1994, the heavy damage it suffered during the war and genocide, the efforts made in the wake of the conflict and finally the reorganization and capacity building of the Ministry itself.
