Less number of teachers have pedagogy skills; Only 4 in 10 teachers shows evidence of mastering the 4th grade language curriculum, and less than %40 of teachers showed evidence of mastering 4th grade mathematics curriculum. Less than a third of teachers keep a record of students’ performance and even few were able to estimate student’s performance within a twenty-point margin. Overall, less than 2 in 10 teachers deployed the teaching practices identified as promoting learning structuring, planning, asking lower and higher-order questions, and giving feedback in their lessons. The system used to select, and train teachers do not deliver high-quality candidates; and it does not help them deliver high-quality teaching. In order to address the aforementioned pedagogic issues, CHA education sector is going to build the capacities of teachers, and principals on teaching skills, methods and school management through subject training for teachers and administrative training for school principals.
