In a context of low, unequal, and stagnant educational achievement in Argentina, Educar y Crecer (EyC) designs, implements and evaluates high quality educational programs for children living in vulnerable contexts, to enhance performance in math and reading. EyC’s programs have five basic components: i) learning standards that specify what primary-aged children should learn in reading and math; ii) specially-designed workbooks that are aligned with those standards that guide instruction; iii) standardized tests in reading and math that are aligned with the learning standards and workbooks, and help quantify achieved progress; iv) instructors who are trained in multi-grade teaching, supported by a team of volunteers; and v) open-source games in reading and math to enhance motivantion and achievement.
In 2008, EyC opened its first Student Learning Center (SLC) in José León Suárez, Province of Buenos Aires, for children living in Villa La Cárcova, where programs are implemented and tested. High demand for quality educational programs has turned EyC into a social franchise, as we provide materials and support to other government and non-government organizations to run our programs. Since 2008, more than 10.000 students have benefited from EyC’s programs, run in more than different 40 educational organizations.
