Social Conflicts
This civil war was fought along religious and cultural lines. The Arabs in the north (who were mostly Muslim) were fighting the native Africans in the south (that were either Christians or Animists).
There was very unequal access to education-literacy rate in Sudan is 61%, South Sudan is 27% (women-16%)
Economic Conflicts
•Fighting over oil was another cause of conflict between the 2 countries (South Sudan produces ¾ of the former Sudan’s oil output)
•South Sudan is landlocked-what problems has/will this cause?
•Mostly herding and subsistence agriculture, drought and desertification has led to massive starvation
•Years of civil war has led to poor infrastructure
Large gap between literacy rate of girls and boys.
91% Boys
79% Girls

School attendance is much higher for boys than girls.
Overall attendance drops in rural areas.
It is felt boys need education for better jobs, girls only need to prepare for marriage.

2/3 money is put toward the education of boys, with only 1/3 going toward girls.
Education reform is to expand religious education of students.
Parents in rural areas feel the education of girls is a waste of money and they should only prepare for marriage.
Some girls are sent to school to study the Quran.

People in Kenya and Sudan do not have access to an education because:
Girls do not receive equal access to education due to cultural importance given to the males.
Traditional roles and culture may not put as much importance on education
African governments cannot afford to invest as much of their GDP into education.
