Training and continued education for better quality teaching
It is not only important that kids go to school, but also that they really learn something there.
If the teaching plan has no content, attending school will not provide increased opportunities for a better future. Hence the Child & Family Foundation concept for San Roque Elementary also includes teacher certification, adapting the lesson plan to the local needs as well as ensuring modern educational methods.
In the months following renovations, emphasis was placed on expanding the lesson plan, tailoring it to local needs and circumstances. Math and science should be taught using modern teaching materials. Construction of a computer lab covered the lack of computer classes.
A library was built as well. Upgraded and child-friendly equipment was provided for agriculture, nutrition and health lessons.
Teachers also received continuing education possibilities.
