2012-13 Young Lives conducted a survey of nearly 12,000 pupils studying in Grades 4 and 5 in 30 sites located across seven regions of Ethiopia. The survey offers a unique perspective on regional and site differences in pupil, teacher and school characteristics and the factors influencing pupil progression and learning in mathematics and reading comprehension over the course of a single school year.
This summary provides an overview of the highlights of the baseline descriptive report of the data, suggesting areas of potential interest to policymakers and areas for more detailed further research.
