Please find attached the detailed report for the project - Improve Learning for 6000 underprivileged children - Whole School TurnAround-Bangalore.
The Teacher Foundation worked with Goodwill English School on the Whole School TurnAround Programme. We have worked intensely with different stakeholder over the last two years. Periodically the reports on the progress of the project are submitted. The attached report is the Endline Report conducted to assess the changes noticed in the four major domains.
Key changes in the school brought through the two year intervention are:• Regular parent teacher meetings in the school providing an opportunity to the parents to meet individual teachers• Enhanced satisfaction of parents with the approachable school heads, affordable fees, activity-based learning, science room and less burden of homework, etc.• Building up of trust in the parents towards quality of education provided by the school.
Do go through the report for the details.
Thank you for all the support to make this project a success.
The Teacher Foundation continues to develop the content for the CEED platform. All the modules developed are translated into Kannada. We have completed developing 6 modules - Understanding Learning; Multiple Intelligence; Active Learning; Collaborative Learning; Assessment and Designing Learning.
Installation of CEED platform in the districts of Karnataka is yet to take off due to issues of gaining permission from the Government of Karntaka. Cisco is pursuing it with the Government of Karnataka.
We can commence training with the Government teachers and heads only in the coming academic year ( 205-2016) as the schols are gearing up for the exams.

Head Review – Head review was also conducted post classroom observation on 15th Sep 2014. The school’s heads and TTF shared the positive changes which are evident in the school as an impact of the intervention. The school also shared a few challenges which it has been encountering now. e.g. resistance from senior teachers for writing lesson plans, attrition of trained teachers, etc.Ms Maya suggested Ms Selvi, the school head, to be firm on certain school related systems and processes so that these do not affect the positive changes which are evident from Std I to Std VII. Overall, the school was very happy with the WST program and they appreciated the WST team and TTF for their effort and support.WST intervention program will get over in Goodwill School in November 2014
