National school leavers (1975/76) survey, 1977

Secondly the survey was designed to extend the range of topics covered by previous surveys, and for the sample to cover a broader range of leavers, and thus to include not only O-grade presentees but also 'non-certificate' pupils.

Otto Gwado Ayoker
The recording at the center of this item is a Shilluk song. In early 1996, the Shilluk Language Council was divided among itself over the chair, while the literacy team and the Bible Translation team were very active.
