Strengthening School Management

The program

Through our programs we support and help to strengthen school management. We do this at the local level by supporting head teachers and school management committees and by supporting the Karen Education Department’s (KED) education administration system.

Our mobile teacher trainers engage local school management during their visits to communities and provide mentoring and training to help develop and strengthen day-to-day management of schools and teachers.

As part of the Karen State Education Assistance Group (KSEAG) we work with the Karen Education Department (KED) to deliver education assistance. Through this activity we also work to strengthen the broader Karen education management systems.

Through KSEAG we have supported the development of a Karen school and teacher database to help facilitate and coordinate administration of the Karen Education System. In 2014 we are supporting the development of a database of almost 150,000 individual students currently studying in schools administered by the Karen Education Department.

By developing education management at the local and at the systemic level we are supporting local governance of education for Karen people.
