Survey of Children’s Reading Materials

Access to and availability of appropriate Early Grade Reading (EGR) materials remain a challenge for students throughout the world. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and other development partners have created the Global Book Alliance, which aims to transform book development, provision, and distribution and to establish a Global Reading Repository. The repository will serve as a global catalogue of existing materials and facilitate their sharing, adaptation, and printing on large or small scales. Under Task Order 19 under the Education Data for Decision Making (EdData II) program, Data for Educational Research and Planning (DERP) in Africa, the Research Team developed a questionnaire and a data collection protocol to conduct a detailed inventory of EGR materials in 11 African countries: the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia. The findings from this inventory will contribute to the Global Reading Repository and are one step in helping ensure appropriate reading materials for all students.
