to be continued ....................
Under derg rule: You will be able to complete high school in your hometown while living with your parents. You or (usually) your parents are also free to decide how you are going to spend your winter break by traveling to visit extended family or finding temporary winter jobs. After taking the school leaving examination in April / May ,you will be required to take part in the National Literacy Campaign by educating adults in Asmara or neighboring villages for about 4 months. If you pass the school leaving exam with high marks you will be able to continue your study in higher education institutions in Ethiopia or Asmara. If not, you will have to look for a job.
Under shaebia rule: If you want to complete high school, you have to go to sawa to complete the final year of the secondary school (grade 11); otherwise you will not complete high school. You also have to take part in the winter agricultural campaigns in July and August once you reach secondary school. That is, you are not free to travel with your family or do private work in your winter break from grade 9 - 11. The state decides where you spend your winter break and disperses the students to the villages to work in the farms.
If you complete high school with high marks, you will continue your study in the country's higher eduction institutions. If not, you will continue your military training in sawa and join the endless national service.
Therefore, high school student under derg were better off than high school students under shaebia administration.
