Building the capacity of local school boards and community groups to support basic education improvement in the Philippines

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Support of local governments and participation of community structures to basic education improvement are very limited if not absent in many impoverished and conflict-affected communities in southern Philippines. This paper demonstrates models for engaging local school boards, parents, teachers and the broader community to generate support for children and teachers in the formal school, and to out-of-school youth, in challenging situations. The community engagement approach involves broadening representation of existing structures to include the youth; and needs-based capacity-building. An integral part of this approach is community incentive grants that provide opportunities for stakeholder groups to apply knowledge and skills gained from capacity building activities. Based on institutional capacity assessments, the approach resulted in local school boards increasing budget allocation, and communities participating in planning, implementing, mobilizing resources, and managing projects, to respond to the identified needs of in-school and out-of-school children and youth in their communities.
