Physics has suddenly become a lot easier to teach at Gjergji Fishta elementary and middle school in Kosovo’s capital, Pristina. A small grant enabled the school to buy new educational tools, including amperemeters.
Physics Teacher Shqipe Lloncari says she can now finally demonstrate how electricity is measured, instead of just talking about it!
“The classes now are much easier, and the students are much more able to understand the subject, and the fact that they can actually put in practice what we teach is not only good for the students but for the country,” Lloncari says.
The new tools and equipment are part of an education project run by Kosovo’s Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology. The World Bank supports the project which aims at strengthening the country’s new educational institutions.
As part of the education project, school staff, students, and their parents all have a say in what they believe their community schools need most.
