LearnARMM Policy Forum Report Released

A research forum on the LearnARMM project was held at the Australian Embassy in Makati, Manila, on 8 September 2016. The forum was hosted by Embassy staff and attended by educators from Mindanao and Manila, including academics from ARMM and representatives of DepEd ARMM, BRAC, partner NGOs, SEAMEO INNOTECH, USAID and the University of the Philippines. The main point to emerge from the discussion was that the children of ARMM, despite very challenging circumstances, can and will make progress in their learning when provided with the opportunity of formal schooling. A summary report distributed at the forum has been released.
