is severly underfunded meaning that teachers are poorly paid and under
trained. This means that teaching doesn’t attract the quality of
employees that it deserves and that those it does are undermotivated.
Another serious problem is that class sizes are too large with number
of students reaching and sometimes passing the 50 mark.
This is anti-pedagogic and Arriba.Ya would like to ease this very serious
problem by providing as many schools as possible with international volunteers
who can act as teachers and teachers assistants in the schools with which
we are working.
This is a really important position as the quality of
teaching effects the success of the students, and will
be the end point of a project which is working to get
them into school. Some of the volunteer’s time
may involve classes with the under-trained teachers thus
guarantying a higher level of education for years after
the volunteer has returned home.
