Current Education System, Teaching Methods, & Curriculum
JAAGO has been providing free of cost quality education to underprivileged children following the English version of NCTB curriculum. With a decade-long presence in the education sector and pioneering the Digital Schooling Program, JAAGO revolutionised the quality of education in remote areas of Bangladesh.
To reduce dropouts in schools, JAAGO Foundation has adapted the blended approach to learning. This is where skilled teachers can teach online with the assistance and supervision of a local community teacher in even the most remote areas of Bangladesh. This approach presents an increased opportunity for students to connect with their teachers.
In addition to this, to address the need of those who do not have access to traditional schools, JAAGO has introduced alternative learning opportunities and developed a curriculum that reflects the special needs of the children and adolescents and empowers them to cope with life.
