Rethinking Reiche, Tracie J. Reed

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

Part II of the study introduces the Howard ...

Teachers Becoming Action-Researchers: Developing A Teacher-Training Module For Increasing Girls' Participation In Primary Schools, Urvashi Sahni

This involves broadly an increase in enrollment, attendance, retention and achievement of girls in primary schools, i.e., classes 1 - 5. While there is a clear understanding and acceptance of the fact that there are several societal reasons for unequal participation of boys and girls in primary education, all ...

The Image Of The Teacher In Rural Colombia: An Inquiry Into Themes, Metaphors, And Implications For Education, Haleh Arbab

Banfes Project Final Report, Linda A. Pursley

Basic and NonFormal Education Systems (BANFES) Project

There are no outstanding evaluation recommendations at Component II (NTTC), so I have chosen to report my work by logframe outputs, using the question and answer format developed by the Project Evaluation Office for conducting interviews and collecting data on initiatives which were not otherwise evaluated. The second section relates my work to the relevant contractual obligations. Finally, I attempt to summarize what has been accomplished, and to reflect on the current situation and possible directions for the future.

My work with BANFES in Lesotho covers the period beginning in September 1985 and concluding in February 1991. Throughout this period ...
