School Governance for Quality Education (Phase3)

A key factor recognised as contributing to sustainable improvements in education outcomes and in ensuring children's right to education is improved community participation in the support and management of schools. Indeed, low levels of community engagement in many schools is a key challenge for achieving the Millennium Development Goal of Education For All in Cambodia. In light of this, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS) has taken steps to prioritise community participation in school management as a means of strengthening the quality and efficiency of primary education and improving school completion rates.

 

Working together with UNICEF and the Ministry, the School Governance project sets out to empower communities to become active members of their schools’ governance structures.
