Schools of Quality: A Case Study on Rights-Based Education Reform in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic
UNICEF (March 2011)
"The changes brought about through introducing Schools of Quality have had a positive impact on stakeholders at all levels. First and foremost, more than 200,000 boys and girls are enjoying a stimulating, child-friendly learning environment in which they have access to a variety of learning materials and activities both inside and outside the classroom. Children are learning critical life skills that will enable them to maintain their health and well-being. And they are increasingly taking responsibility for their own learning and gaining confidence in their ability to succeed."
This collection of case studies from a number of countries captures the richness of experiences UNICEF and its partners accumulated in the past fifteen years through applying the CFS approach in their work on quality of education.
