Monitoring, Evaluation, Framework Development, Stakeholder Engagement


This research article explores innovative solutions for establishing a technology-driven, stakeholder-inclusive monitoring and evaluation (M&E) framework for schools under the Directorate of Elementary, Secondary, and Higher Secondary Education in Karachi. Using thematic analysis as a qualitative method, the study assesses data collected through document reviews, observations, and interviews with stakeholders. It examines current M&E practices, identifies challenges, and proposes a new mechanism based on these findings. This mechanism integrates technology, stakeholder participation, and capacity building to improve decision-making and accountability. The paper also provides historical context, highlighting bureaucratic challenges and the need for a streamlined M&E process. The proposed framework aims to enhance educational outcomes and ensure accountability across the education system.
