School management and community participation

School management 

Working to strengthen school management systems and increase community participation in education can lead to greater accountability and improved governance for schools.

EfC has worked in collaboration with ministries of education and multilateral donors to improve learning and education quality through strengthening school management systems and increasing community participation in countries such as Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ethiopia and Bangladesh.

  • Mapping and situational analysis of school management and governance mechanisms and systems
  • Design of school management systems and processes, school improvement planning and school grant systems
  • Capacity development of school managers and school management committees
