Schooling for Success: Preventing Repetition and Dropout in Latin American Primary Schools

By Laura Randall; Joan B. Anderson | Go to book overview
Time dedicated to learning . It is necessary to increase the time available to Students for learning ( Schiefelbein 1995). This could be achieved in two complementary ways: (i) enforcing the current norms on length of the school day and year and curbing teachers' absences; and (ii) modifying teaching strategies in the classroom to improve effective learning. The second alternative would have a high cost, but would favor not only the increase of time employed, but also the improvement of the educational process in the classroom.
Complete multi-grade schools . As pointed out earlier, there are appropriate methods to generate effective multi-grade learning processes. By means of multigrade classes it is possible to offer eight years of education in all the primary schools.
