Re: [Schooltool-developers] SchoolTool Intervention > Goals


Although we have not been able to make much progress on our end, however, Intervention for us is more meaningful, because while current design emphasize Intervention based on Students need, we think that for a developing country, Intervention in a school goes beyond Students, and should include things such as meeting teacher/pupil ratio, pupil/no of classroom, professional teacher ratio, student personal goal, etc.

What about when School Based Management Committee (SBMC) is fully adopted and set goals for their school etc.

My hope is that we get our bearing right this year and make demands on this end and then may be the other community members deploying SchoolTool can benefit from our experience.

-1 for me.
