MDF is concerned with the development of the community, and education is an important part of that. We need to tailor some creative proposals to the local situation for the local administration's reference, this task focuses on the relationship between the policies of local education and students' performance, and we hope to understand the impact between them in the form of a literature review.

The project is designed to understand how educational strategies affect learning outcomes in economically and socially disadvantaged regions focusing on the background of PNG. This research aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4), which aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. By focusing on underprivileged areas, this study seeks to contribute valuable insights into the effectiveness of current educational policies and their direct impact on student performance. The findings will be crucial for developing more targeted and effective educational strategies that can bridge the gap in educational attainment and support the achievement of SDG 4.

We will incorporate what we have learned about the impact of education policy on pupil attainment in the results of this task so that we can inform our funded schools in PNG of the role of education policy, as well as share the results of this research to the Department of Education for their reference.

The proposal will be submitted to donors who can fund this project.

We are seeking the support of three online volunteers for this research project, each with a specific task:

  1. Policy Analysis:

Analyse various educational policies and their implementation in underprivileged areas; these areas to be developed include several villages in Morobe province, with specific information provided by MDF. This includes reviewing policy documents, educational frameworks, and reform initiatives to understand their intended impact on student performance. The manifestation of this result requires the creation of a table that clarifies the advantages and disadvantages, the effects, and the evaluation of educational policies based on the analysis of the material we provide. This will help us to understand the advantages and disadvantages of the policies in question and provide us with more specific information.

  1. Data Collection and Analysis:

Virtually gather and analyse data on student performance in underprivileged areas. This involves designing surveys, conducting interviews, or utilising existing datasets to assess the impact of educational policies. The main sources of these data are publicly available, including academic websites, information websites, publications, and so on. Based on the collected data, volunteers then do visual image processing while relying on their expertise to express professional opinions on the figures.

  1. Research Proposal Writing:

Compile the findings of the policy analysis and data collection into a coherent research proposal. This document should clearly articulate the research objectives, methodology, expected outcomes, and the potential impact on educational policy and practice. The completion of this task is based on the first two, and it is sufficient for this volunteer to complete the compilation.

A deep understanding of the challenges in education within underprivileged areas. Demonstrated expertise in either educational policy analysis or quantitative and qualitative research methods. Strong analytical and critical thinking skills. Ability to work collaboratively in a remote team environment. Proficiency in English, with excellent communication skills. Commitment to ethical research practices, particularly in sensitive educational settings. Familiarity with the UN's SDG 4 and a passion for contributing to educational equity.
