Noon Meal Improves Girls' Learning in Burkina Faso

Jun 5, 2007

06-07 school year results

The college (middle school) reports that in this second year of operation, 77% of students advanced to the next level (compared with 71% last year and less than half that number in public schools). 22% will repeat their previous year of studies. Excellent results in a very rigorous system! The long term goal is 90% advancement to the next level. The noonday meal has contributed greatly to the students' concentration.
