had has had civil war since independence (1960) and that has impacted negatively on education. This civil war makes the governmental schools poor and unstable because most of the national budget for education goes to the military most of the time. This instability in the governmental schools made the community sent their children to the non-governmental schools, which have been financed by individuals or other countries. These schools are more stable than the governmental schools. Yet, these schools have language and curriculum problems, which have been unrecognized by the government for a long time. This thesis examines the non-governmental schools in Chad. This thesis compares the governmental schools' and the non-governmental schools' curricula. It analyzes the two types of schools, and the curriculum problems that these schools are suffering from. The thesis focuses on how to unify the study language between these schools and to create a core curriculum between these schools. To do this thesis, I used case study method. I did interviews with administrators, graduates, and students in five different kinds of schools. Finally, Chad as one of the poorest nation needs much, especially in the education. I hope this is the beginning of examining and solving the non-governmental schools' problems because these schools are very efficient for the community.
