Systems Implications for Core Instructional Support Lessons from Sobral (Brazil), Puebla (Mexico), and Kenya
Abstract
As this note was being written in April and May 2020, the Coronavirus pandemic was sweeping the world. Children were out of school. Researchers around the world are now estimating a severe learning gap due to loss of school attendance. While the first priority is getting children back to school safely, the discussion in this note regarding foundational learning is all the more relevant, as it is this kind of learning that is likely most affected. Key Points The case studies in this document highlight five tips that may be beneficial to other countries or situations: Focus on just a very few achievable indicators, foregrounding foundational learning, for a country emphasising learning. Use data to drive both initial “wake-up” and stock taking but also to support teaching as the process goes along. Emphasis on the teaching by the teachers who are already in place. Provide strong motivation through support that works. Use tight management so there is some degree of centralism and prescriptiveness as to pedagogy and other inputs, but after having iterated and adapted to context.
