Flexible, Multi-Level Learning for OOSC: Dhaka Ahsania Mission's Children's Learning Centers, A Case Study
Dhaka Ahsania Mission (DAM) is one of EAC’s initial partners, joining in 2012 when the idea of reaching 10 million OOSC was still more of a dream than a real possibility. DAM’s Children’s Learning Centers (CLCs) project is of particular interest to EAC because it reaches some children who face multiple barriers to accessing education. It does this through an innovative approach that includes accelerated learning in multi-grade classrooms that cater to individual student’s learning level on a subject-by-subject basis. The DAM graduates perform better on the national end of primary level test and with higher retention rates than students from government schools.
