Approaches to education provision for mobile pastoralists

Author(s) : C. Dyer

Summary :

Experiences of mobile pastoralists often attest to a wide range of contradictions about the presumed advantages of formal education. While effort to ‘reach’ pastoralists has intensified under the global Education for All movement, there remain considerable difficulties in finding ways to make formal education relate to pastoralist livelihoods and complement endogenous knowledge. This paper examines how these dynamics play out across models of formal and non-formal education service provision, and identifies innovations that offer promising ways forward: Alternative Basic Education, Open and Distance Learning, and Pastoralist Field Schools.
