After increasing access to education, Senegal is turning its attention to ensuring that all children learn to read in the early grades.
Learning from All Children Reading Technical Briefs .
Technical Brief | April 18, 2022
The world has been facing a global learning crisis since even before the COVID-19 pandemic triggered widespread learning loss. In response, many countries are enacting reforms to improve foundational skills like reading, which require multiple coherent education system components that tightly align with learning and use cost-effective approaches to achieve and sustain outcomes at national scale.
From 2015 through 2021, Chemonics led multiple early grade reading reform activities under the USAID All Children Reading Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity Contract. These activities include programming in Senegal to support the Ministry of National Education’s Lecture Pour Tous program; in Rwanda under the Soma Umenye project; and in Tajikistan for the Read with Me project.
We developed a series of technical briefs – “Learning from All Children Reading” – to share key innovations and evidence generated from these programs.
