The study also looked at how the program was perceived by students and teachers. As a result, there were insufficient counseling rooms for individual counseling for teacher-counsellors, there was no separate budget for school counseling, there were no file cabinets or display boards, there were insufficient counselors, and there was insufficient knowledge about counseling activities, according to the findings of the study. A distinct or special budget be made aside for the school counseling program, as well as assignments of teacher-counselors to schools where positions have not yet been filled, and frequent awareness-raising activities are proposed as a consequence of this.</p> Imara Sekibo Jokia Tinibu Mchumba Balogun Copyright (c) 2022 Journal Educational Verkenning 2022-05-31 2022-05-31 3 1 1 9 Professionalizing the Teaching Service <p>This is a theoretical study that evaluates the situation of teacher management in Kenya at the moment, with a particular focus on the growing issues.

In particular, this study aimed to find out how far the footprint of Bugis and Kaili language and when both languages separate from its proto-language. The data were analyzed by implementing lexicostatistics and glottochronology techniques to identify quantitative evidence, and sound correspondence was applied to identify qualitative evidences. The results reveal that in lexicostatistics the cognate percentage of both languages is 27% and by glottochronology calculation of both languages split from their proto-language between 660 – 918 CE (2020). Qualitatively, there are six sets of sound correspondences found in BB and BK are: / ǝ - a /, / a - ǝ /, / o - u /, / m - n /, / b - v /, and /? - Ø /, and six types of sound changes found, are: Lenition and fortition, sound loss, apocope, syncope, sound addition, and metathesis.</p> Makkawaru Makkawaru Hendrokumoro Hendrokumoro Copyright (c) 2022 Journal Educational Verkenning 2022-06-07 2022-06-07 3 1 17 27 The Ugly Bildungsromans- Subversion, dissent and assertion in Toni Morrison and Latifa al-Zayyat <div><span lang="EN-US">This paper aims to explore the multiple layers of oppression women go through in the postcolonial, hetero-normative, orthodox, patriarchal society as portrayed in Toni Morrison’s 1987 novel Beloved and Latifa al-Zayyat’s novel The Open Door, which she wrote in the year 1960. It also attempts to understand and highlight how different Female Bildungsromans are when compared to the conventional Male Bildungsromans. The intensity of the struggle which the protagonists of these novels are facing, makes one dub these novels as “The Ugly Bildungsromans”. Two characters from different spaces and different times, Layla from The Open Door and Sethe from Beloved, are discussed in this paper as one attempts to underscore the similarities, as well as the differences their struggles have, while also attempting to accentuate the reasons for the similarities and differences. Both of the characters are frustrated existences due to their social condition, and are required to make choices in order to reclaim their identities as human beings.</span></div> Hussein Kadhim Zamil Azhar Waheed Naser Wahad Khalil Hashem Copyright (c) 2022 Journal Educational Verkenning 2022-06-29 2022-06-29 3 1 28 36
