Achievement Evaluation of Colombia's Escuela Nueva: Is Multigrade the Answer?
Psacharopoulos, George; And Others
Comparative Education Review, v37 n3 p263-76 Aug 1993
Colombia's rural "escuelas nuevas" feature multigrade classrooms, flexible promotion, rural-oriented curriculum, parent and community involvement, mastery learning, peer instruction, and library resources. A study of over 3,000 students found that, compared to traditional schools, Escuela Nueva schools had lower dropout probabilities, higher achievement in all grade-3 areas, and higher Spanish achievement in grade 5.
