Improvement of Quality of Education in Narrowal (YEAR ONE)

Funded by:

Foundation Open Society Institute (FOSI)

Summary

The education scenario in Pakistan is operating in an environment, which is experiencing multiple challenges. The most dominant among these are; lack of capacity to manage educational institute, centralized decision making, lack of financial autonomy, paucity of funds, lack of performance incentive for teaching staff and school management, apathy of parents, and last but not least, poverty.The project, Improvement of Quality of Education in Narrowal Phase 1, started in October 2011. At the initial stage, the focus remained on developing liaison and coordination with the district government official for necessary approvals. The most important step was to select the schools for the project implementation. This was accomplished by signing a MOU with the district government for taking approval for the selection of schools. After selecting the schools in consultation with the district government, as a first step, MOJAZ conducted diagnostic study of 10 schools to find out problems and causes of poor service delivery in respective schools in Narrowal. The results of the diagnostic study were shared with key stakeholder in a workshop. The participants of the workshop included EDO Education, Narrowal, Deputy Education Officer, Head Teachers from schools selected for the project. The EDO education appreciated MOJAZ efforts in taking up the challenge to improve the quality of education in elementary schools and requested the key stakeholders to extend their full cooperation and support to facilitate MOJAZ in the implementation of the project. The community involvement in the improvement of quality of education has been considered as an important aspect under the project. In this regards MOJAZ formed ten school management committees. These committees have representation from parents and head teachers. MOJAZ focused on capacity building of these committees. Members of these committees are taking active part in the implementation of the project.
