Project Report | Dec 14, 2018
Innovation in Chile's New Public Education System!

By Brittany Brown | International Relations Coordinator

Back in March, we shared the exciting news that Educación 2020 made history by partnering with the very first "Servicio Locales de Educación Pública” (SLEP) office in Barrancas, outside of Santiago. These Ministry-of-Education-run SLEP offices are the cornerstone of the Chile’s "New Public Education Law," which provides fairer distribution of resources and personnel to public schools. We have exciting news to share about this project!

Establishing their commitment to educational innovation, three vulnerable public schools administered by the Barrancas SLEP office worked with Educación 2020 to launch Tutorial Relationships in November of 2018. Tutorial Relationships is an educational movement that builds learning networks based on dialogue, reflection and community. Students learning through Tutorial Relationships demonstrate improved self-confidence, critical thinking, reading comprehension, and communication skills. Your contributions have helped to bring about this change!

The first step in implementing the 18-month Tutorial Relationships program is training the “pioneer” group of teachers, followed by “pioneer” students. Here is a sneak peak of what educators are saying about their experience during the first few weeks of workshops.

“I think it’s very valuable to break down these barriers that many times we have as teachers, and to understand that students have the capacity to teach, that they can build their own learning processes and those of others. We feel very privileged to be the first teachers in Barrancas to be trained in this methodology, which I think will contribute to changing our public education system.” -Nicole Bascuñán, Sor Teresa de Los Andes School

“We are truly very motivated after this week. We already want to begin training others in our school community because we believe that this is a way to ensure that all students learn.”                                                        -Sandra Fuentes, Pedagogical Director of the Doctor Treviso Girardi School 

“We have incorporated Tutorial Relationships as a learning tool because we think it’s important that Chile’s new public education system dare to innovate, breaking the paradigm that only certain people can teach. With the support of Educación 2020, we are proving that in Barrancas everyone can be protagonists of both learning and teaching.”                                    -Marcelo Segura, Director of the SLEP office in Barrancas 

None of this would be possible without the help of supporters like you. Thank you again, and happy holidays!

Abrazo,

The Educación 2020 Team
