Comparative Education: The United States of America and Sierra Leone
The University of Oklahoma
I conducted my interview with Zara Strasser for my assignment and it is her answers to
this interview that are the basis of this paper. Zara Strasser is a member of the Krio ethnic group
of Sierra Leone where she was born and raised. Zara spent the first nineteen years of her life in
the city of Freetown where she attended school from the age of six years old until she graduated
at the age of eighteen. Shortly after graduation from secondary school, Zara married a
missionary from her church and moved to the United States, she was nineteen years old.
Children in Sierra Leone start their school career at the age of six when they begin the
first of the six years of required primary education, which is similar to our grade school. After
these six years of schooling, a student then is required to attend another three years of junior
secondary school, which is like our junior high school . The last three years of non-university
schooling is called senior secondary school and is not mandatory. Students that decide to go on
to senior secondary school are usually boys from the cities and larger towns, although a few
girls from wealthier families might also continue on with their education, too. A student
attending senior secondary school has their choice of which educational path to take depending
on whether or not they want to attend one of the three universities in Sierra Leone or if they
want to get vocational training and learn a trade. Nearly all of the male students that go to
vocational schools learn some kind of farming or construction training or car repair. Few, if
any, girls go to vocational schools and there is not really any training programs aimed at
females or their traditional roles in Sierra Leone, although more girls are now going to teaching
colleges than they did in the past.
