The TCAI program in Ghana introduces a remedial education system that adds classroom helpers and targets instruction to actual skill levels.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Enrollment rates in Ghana's primary schools have improved significantly, yet students are still lagging behind and advancements in learning do not match those in attendance. Pupil to teacher ratios remain low and often mask large disparities in classroom size, as well as variations in learning levels. Taking into account levels of teacher and student absenteeism and non educational activities, students in Ghana are productively engaged for only 39% of instructional time available.
How will this project solve this problem?
The project works with a variety of stakeholders to improve teaching practices in schools. The goal is to ensure that instruction is focused at the right level for maximum effect on students' assimilation of knowledge and basic skills.
Potential Long Term Impact
Teacher Community Assistants (TCAs) will be identified and monitored by the School Management Committees and PTAs, thus creating a sustainable solution for remedial lessons to ensure that basic math and reading skills improve in all project regions.
