Assessment, Transparency and Autonomy as Principles for School Management

AKP Phnom Penh, July 15, 2019 —

Regular learning assessment, school transparency and school autonomy are essential principles to promote quality school management.

The recommendations were shared by H.E. Nath Bunroeun, Secretary of State at the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports when chairing a workshop on Secondary Education Improvement Project (SEIP) yesterday in Siem Reap province.

The foundations, he underlined, must be well in line with the on-going education reforms in order to be able to address all emerging issues faced by school.

The practice is indeed the core spirit of the Secondary Education Improvement Project, continued H.E. Nath Bunroeun who is also the director of SEIP initiative.

Kick-started in August 2017 through the financing from the World Bank, SEIP is a five-year project primarily aims to expand secondary education access in 130 schools, and upgrade the capacity of teachers and education officials at different levels.

Toward the next step in ensuring the effectiveness of quality school management as well as SEIP, the secretary of state also urged the sharpening of the six roles of teachers, including, educator, second parent, first-aid provider, lawyer, career counselor, and security focal point.

The roles will not only promote better learning among students, but also improve confidence among parents and the public.
