Bangladesh - Second Female Secondary School Assistance Project (English)

Ratings for the Second Female Secondary School Assistance Project for Bangladesh were as follows: outcomes were satisfactory, the risk to development outcome was moderate, Bank performance was satisfactory, and Borrower performance was also satisfactory. Some lessons learned included: efforts to improve quality will not succeed unless there are capable subject teachers. Teacher provisioning especially in mathematics, English and science has been a significant challenge in secondary schools. Schools which have the requisite number of teachers, the focus is now on improving teacher quality through changes in classroom practices, supported by on-site support. The Government's strategy to promote education for girls through demand-side interventions has proven successful in expanding access to education. This approach should be extended to promote education for poor boys and girls. Community involvement is essential for improving service delivery in remote and disadvantaged areas and for ensuring project sustainability. When communities have meaningful responsibilities, control over resources, and are accountable, they become actively engaged in project activities, thereby bolstering community participation. Establishing a comprehensive monitoring and evaluation system is critical in ensuring that the approaches adopted by the project under various components are properly evaluated. This will help determine whether the project is meeting its goals and objective, and also provide information/data for real-time corrective action.
