In India’s Bihar State, training teachers to deliver quality education
On World Literacy Day, we spoke with our colleague, Senior Education Specialist Shabnam Sinha, on the importance of training teachers to improve learning outcomes.
Ms. Sinha is working on a project that aims to improve the quality of elementary school teaching in Bihar, India where the number of students enrolled in grades 1 to 8 has increased tremendously – from some 11 million students in 2004 to more than 21 million in 2014, of whom about 90 percent live in rural areas.
