Training community teachers in Cambodia

The Highland Children's Education Project trained a cadre of teachers in Ratanakiri Province in Cambodia drawn from the local community in order to better serve children through mother tongue instruction. The project is described in Highland children’s education project: Good lessons learned in basic education (Middleborg, 2005). The project addressed the needs of the community for mother tongue instruction in part by building a teacher base from local community members, none of the initial group of community teachers had completed a primary education themselves.
