The Constitution of the Republic of South Sudan has been clearly spelt out that basic education must be free and compulsory to all children. It is, therefore, the mandate of the Ministry of General Education and Instruction to ensure translation enactment into actual deeds. MoGEI is also mandated to develop appropriate policies and strategies for guaranteeing this noble task and to ensure that other related roles such as the oversight and equity issues are dealt with properly. These tasks are to be delivered by the seven Directorates of the Ministry, one secretariat, two centers and a Teachers’ Development and Management Services and their respective departments through the stewardship of the Honourable Minister and Honourable Undersecretary.
The mission of the General Education Sector is
“To provide equitable access to quality lifelong learning opportunities for all people of South Sudan.”
Sub-sector’s vision, which is based on The South Sudan Vision 2040, is as follows:
“To build an educated and informed nation by providing quality education for all.”
