Evaluating an Improved Quality Preschool Program in Rural Bangladesh
Moore, Anna C.; Akhter, Sadika; Aboud, Frances E.
International Journal of Educational Development, v28 n2 p118-131 Mar 2008
An important goal of education in developing countries is to implement and improve early childhood education. A pre-post intervention-control design was used to compare a piloted-revised versus a regular preschool program offered by an organization in rural Bangladesh. After 7 months in operation, the quality of the piloted-revised program was higher than the regular program, though the regular program had also improved. Children attending pilot preschools made greater gains than children attending regular preschools on most outcome measures. Action research was conducted alongside the quantitative evaluation to study the process of the implementation and to identify areas for further improvement.
