A comparison of the effects of educational policies on primary and secondary education in Sierra Leone during colonial, post-independence, and post-civil war eras.
The present educational system in Sierra Leone is a crisis of maladjustment - of disparities taking many forms - between the system and its socio-economic environment. Some of these maladjustments include the gap between educational demand and supply; imbalance between educational output and the economy's manpower needs; and misfit between the contents of education, training and the real needs of the society.

The present educational system in Sierra Leone is a crisis of maladjustment - of disparities taking many forms - between the system and its socio-economic environment. Some of these maladjustments include the gap between educational demand and supply; imbalance between educational output and the economy's manpower needs; and misfit between the contents of education, training and the real needs of the society. The research study compares the effects of educational policies on primary and secondary education in Sierra Leone during colonial, post-independence, and post-civil war eras. It examines trends in educational policies from the colonial period to present and assesses how these policies influenced the educational practices and standards, such as student enrollment, teacher qualification, student-teacher ratio, drop-out rate and academic achievements at the primary and secondary levels of schooling. In addition, the study collected data on the perceptions of educational policy makers, school administrators, and teachers on the current needs to improve education in Sierra Leone. Resources from the Ministry of Education and policy makers were utilized. Twenty school administrators and sixty teachers within the four regions in the country also participated in the study. The study is descriptive and historical by design and it is based on the 'Interpretive' research theory. The 10 year civil war devastated school infrastructures, displaced teachers and weakened institutional capacity to manage the educational system. The findings show significant growth in the demand for schooling and deficiencies such as classrooms, teachers, learning materials, and incentives. Expansion at the primary school level has not been matched by provision at the secondary school level. The decentralization process has good potential for success, but local capacity issues need to be addresses to achieve smooth implementation. Intervention policies should focus on improving teachers'
