dc.description.abstract The access and attendance of refugee education is tied to many factors. Thus, the study needs to understand the factors that affect the access and attendance of Eritrean and Somalia refugees’ secondary education in Addis Ababa. The study mainly examines the socio-cultural, school environment, and policy-related factors that hinder secondary education at Addis Ababa. To achieve the objective of the study the research employed a descriptive survey research design. Data were mainly collected from a primary source through questionnaires, interviews, and desk reviews from secondary sources. The study used a purposive sampling technique to determine 108 (54 teachers and 54 refugee students) samples from 5 public schools. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the empirical data by using SPSS 20 software. The study found out that (SCER, SER and PRF) were factors that are influencing access to refugee education in Addis Ababa with the result (β1= 0.326, β2= 0.532, β3 = 0.058 and p<0.05 for each variable respectively. The coefficient of determination R2 = 0.933 shows that 93.3% of the variation in access and attendance is explained by the independent variables. The study concluded that language problems, low interest in education, low economic status of the refugees and unclear policy and certificate problems are influencing refugees to access secondary school in Addis Ababa. This study recommends to all concerned bodies working with refugee education; should work to solve socio-economic, school environment and policy-related problems to enhance the access and attendance of Eritrean and Somalia refugee secondary school in Addis Ababa.
