This thesis analyses the impact of structural changes in the Tajik society and education system in relation to factors such as gender differences, academic success, socioeconomic status of families, and the educational expectations and plans of Tajik parents and children. The thesis begins by briefly describing the social transformations that Tajikistan wentthrough in the past 100 years; particular attention is paid to the break-up of the USSR and the civil war that took place in the last 20 years. It is suggested that the social context which shapes the attitudes of parents and children towards education has been changed considerably, creating new types of educational trajectories and re-framing educational and social inequality in the country.
The second part of the thesis presents qualitative and quantitative data on how Tajik parents and children perceive further education and employment and make educational choices within the current institutional context. The empirical basis of the study includes a representative national survey of 1,000 rural and urban households and 33 interviews that were collected in different urban and rural regions of Tajikistan. The analysis of the collected data is based on two theoretical concepts: parents’ educational expectations and horizons for action. (Less)
