SeP Ethiopia: May 2017 Update

The collaborations with Support Education and the Ethiopian Ministry of Education continued to develop and a delivery model using only tablets containing complete content for each grade was tested further at Burayu Secondary and Preparatory School and at a new placement at Chacha Secondary and Preparatory School in Amhara state. Dr. Wilson made visits to each school to get feedback and discuss further plans with local leadership. We hope to have tablets for all students in grades 9-12 available for the new school year starting in September 2017 at both Burayu and Chacha.
