Palestine: Improving Teaching Quality in Primary Schools

December 3, 2015

Good teachers with on the job training have a direct impact on the learning and success of students. Recognizing that need and translating it into active strategy is investing in the future of Palestinian children and their resilience to challenges – such investment pays off for years to come. In 2010 the World Bank Teacher Education Improvement Project stepped in, targeting 1st through 4th grade classrooms, with a focus on collaborations with well-known local Universities. The goal of this project was to enrich the base of the education system in Palestine by improving the quality of its primary school teachers. Starting in 2015, World Bank is expanding the project to include more primary school teachers and more Palestinian Universities.
