Lecture Pour Tous
Over the last two decades, Senegal has made notable progress toward increasing the number of children who enroll in and complete primary school. Now, the government is pursuing nationwide reform to ensure the quality of classroom instruction is high and inspire families and communities to become involved in helping children learn. USAID/Lecture Pour Tous is supporting the Senegalese government’s efforts to boost early-grade reading, particularly through its national reading program. The program is introducing practices, such as the use of mother-tongue instruction and communications that promote social and behavioral change, to encourage families and communities to become more involved in their children’s education. Drawing from local research, USAID/Lecture Pour Tous is developing a strong policy framework to increase and sustain long-term student reading outcomes.
