Edo is implementing a State-wide public education transformation, called the Edo Basic Education Sector Transformation or EdoBEST–aimed at improving outcomes across the entire State’s public primary and junior secondary school system.
In February 2019, the Edo state government commissioned a report called The EdoBEST Effect which was designed to look at learning gains in the first term of the EdoBEST programme. The study looked at 30 control schools 30 intervention schools and considered Primary 3 and Primary 4 students.
To note: this study was done in the first term of the EdoBEST programme. The Edo State Government is in the process of commissioning a longer term study to analyse the full impact of the EdoBEST programme.
