  1. Are Our Schools Violence Free?


    All children deserve a school environment that is safe and nurturing – one that will allow them to grow, thrive, and maximize their full potential. Yet many students in the developing world face a different daily  reality. The physical, psychological, and sexual violence they experience in and around school compromises their ability to fully realize the benefits of education. It impacts whether students enroll in  and attend school and whether they are engaged, motivated, and able to concentrate and learn while there. Gender violence can occur in classrooms, dormitories, boarding houses, administrative buildings, teachers’ residences, other parts of school grounds, and on the way to and from school. It can have short- and long-term impacts on students’ health and well-being, including reproductive health problems, broken bones, cognitive impairment, substance abuse, depression, and suicidal behavior, among others.

    Despite these consequences, there is limited understanding of the depth and breadth of school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) in the developing world. This report of USAID reviews the literature on SRGBV in order to improve understanding about its causes, prevalence, and consequences. It examines how gender norms, poverty, and a culture of violence contribute to SRGBV. The report explores violence that is  perpetrated by both male and female students and teachers. While much of the literature focuses on sexual  violence, this report also highlights the prevalence and impact of physical and psychological abuse. It examines barriers to preventing and responding to SRGBV, including silence around the issue, inadequate laws and codes of conduct, enforcement problems with existing laws, shortages of teachers and guidance
    counselors, and flaws in the design and implementation of existing interventions.

  4. Science and Insight

    When science is taught without any intuitive reference to the notions that already exist in the mind of the student, it leads to the fragmentation of the mind and the two seldom meet, and the matter is left unresolved. In time, the intuitive expression resurfaces and dominates responses. This seems... Comment
  5. Playground Mathematics

    Visual representation of information highlights the power of compression. That is the reason why the National Curriculum Framework says “Mathematics is amazingly compressible: one may struggle a lot, work out something, perhaps by trying many methods.
