Bombomma - MTM Public School

Liberia

PROGRAM(S) PARTICIPATED IN: Solution – More Than Me University 16

PROBLEM

School does not have sufficient number of teachers, and struggles with teacher attendance, student attendance, and effective instruction. School is lacking basic infrastructure and is very isolated. 

HOW MIGHT WE…

Build positive school culture and engage community to improve conditions for learning. 

SOLUTION

Maxwell Glain and Bulabue Barcon are the School Capacity Leaders at Bombomma – MTM Public School is in Gbarpulo County in Liberia, Africa. They redesigned the school schedule to include weekly, teacher collaborative time where they learn keys to effective, engaging instruction and design lesson plans. They are testing an incentive system of Teacher of the Week + Marking Period to increase attendance and engagement. They engaged the community to increase student enrollment to improve student attendance and build bridges so that more students can come to school, even during the rainy season in Liberia.
