Despite billions of dollars being invested in hundreds of initiatives to improve educational outcomes there are still an estimated one million under-performing government schools around the world. Despite this massive investment, most under-performing government schools remain stubborn under-performers. No country has, until now, found a scalable solution to address this apparently insoluble problem.
Endemic poor education, especially in emerging countries, has left billions of young people poorly educated, largely unemployable, angry and mobile. Many children still leave school barely able to read, count or write.
Clearly there is not time to train one school at a time. Not even 100 schools simultaneously. It is necessary for each country to own a programme capable of sustainably turning every school into a centre of excellence within two years.
BCF, to the best of our knowledge, is the first organisation to offer proven, scalable cost-effective programmes capable of empowering ministries of education to transform every school in their country into a centre of excellence.
As a consequence of BCF programmes, millions of the poorest children will become engineers, teachers, accountants, computer boffins, electricians, etc. all adding to their national economy and global intellectual capital.
