BayelsaPRIME Methodology up for exhibition

The teaching and learning methodology that drives BayelsaPRIME, the basic education reform programme of Bayelsa State, is up for exhibition as the 2024 Education World Forum commences in London on May 19.

An annual event, Education World Forum is the world’s largest gathering of education and skills ministers. This year, over estimated 120 ministers drawn from 114 countries will focus on the theme “Encouraging AI understanding, building human relationships and resilience, and accelerating climate action. How should we prioritise policy and implementation for Stronger, Bolder, Better, Education?”

Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State launched BayelsaPRIME, to increase pupil enrollment, address challenges with a weak curriculum, teacher truancy and poor learning outcomes in government primary schools.

In 2022, a study conducted by noble prize in economics winner, Professor Michael Kremer in Kenya showed that attending schools delivering highly standardized education has the potential to produce dramatic learning gains at scale, suggesting that policymakers may wish to explore the incorporation of standardization, including standardized lesson plans and teacher feedback and monitoring, in their own systems.
