– Theme: Deepening family and community engagement
– Format: Panel
– Primary language: English
We have evolved a checklist of roles and responsibilities for parental bodies (School Management Committees & Community Teachers Association [equivalent of UK PTA]) that re-establish even the less literate members of the community.
The checklist + a workshop run in collaboration with the school-leadership that re-engages everybody in a common understanding of what the minimum standards are for a good school, however basic these might be and supporting the community groups to take up their role in upholding these standards.
This is used in our own school and has been used as part of EducAid’s outreach programme for school improvement across well over 150 schools. It provides a good source of local governance in a context where the Ministry of Education has limited resources and staff to reach regularly and provide formal support to the raising of standards.
