Guyana - Secondary School Reform Project (English)

The primary objective of the Secondary School Reform Project is to assist the government to initiate a long-term, multiphased education reform program to improve quality, relevance, equity and efficiency to secondary education in Guyana. More specifically, the project will aim to: 1) develop measures to improve the quality and efficiency of lower secondary education and test them at a limited number of schools in order to gain acceptance before extending the reform to the rest of the system; 2) improve the school environment by supporting rehabilitation and repair of schools; and 3) enhance the ability of national and regional institutions to design, plan for, and implement sustainable education reforms. The project will have the following three components: 1) educational program quality, including support to school management, training of principals, deputy principals and department heads, introduction of a common curriculum, provision of textbooks and other instructional materials, in-service teacher training, supervision and performance monitoring; 2) school environment comprising a pilot schools subcomponent and an emergency school repair subcomponent; and 3) national and regional institutional strengthening including institutional strengthening, project management, budget planning, organization and management, nationwide physical facilities survey, school information system and a social awareness campaign.
