An overview of deploying the NewGlobe Methodology to drive up school performance at scale in low infrastructure economies by Cairneagle associates.
NewGlobe has built a strong reputation with governments in Africa, India and China working in partnership with teachers and communities to help build capacity and capability in government school systems and enabling significant improvements in school attainment levels in underserved, low income communities in regions with low infrastructure and limited participation.
Unique to the NewGlobe methodology is their collaborative approach, working with existing government teachers and government schools to drive up attainment levels. NewGlobe operates as a technical partner, providing training, materials and technology to support existing teachers improve their practice, underpinned by research and informed by a wealth of data and insight which has led to the development of an approach that meets local needs and delivers exceptional results at scale and at pace.
The NewGlobe approach sees existing government schools transformed into powerful public schools. By targeting communities with the highest numbers of children, the NewGlobe approach maximises impact at pace and at scale.
Cairneagle concludes that the NewGlobe Platform and Methodology:
The general conclusion of the research is simple and unequivocal: improvements in the quality (as opposed to the quantity) of schooling increases the cognitive ability of the labour force, which directly translates to greater productivity and higher economic output for a province or country. More specifically, the work correlates and quantifies both improvements in education outcomes (on the ‘input’ side) and the corresponding increases in GDP growth (on the ‘output’ side).
