School Quality Improvement Program

Last updated:2010-08-11 06:23:47

School Quality Improvement Program (SCN/SCA Joint implementation)
Goal:  To fulfil children’s right to pre- and primary education by ensuring that Lao children, particularly those marginalised by poverty, remoteness, and/or disability, as well as girls and ethnic groups,  can access relevant, quality, basic education, in an inclusive and protective environment.

The primary target groups are pre-primary and primary school age children (5+). The secondary target groups are provincial and district health authorities, school principals, teachers, parents and communities. As background, the Ministry of Education is giving priority to the provision of a one year pre-primary programme, as a means of lowering drop out and repetition rates in primary school, with the expectation that completing a pre-primary year significantly enhances children’s learning outcomes at primary level, particularly for children whose mother tongue is other than the language of instruction.
