In 2004, a baseline survey was carried out by the programme staff in 154 schools in these three upazilas. The repeat survey was conducted by the Research and Evaluation Division. Issues for explorations were the changes in teachers in terms of capacity building, school and class management, and guardian and community in terms of participation in school activities. In addition, some qualitative exercises were done to supplement the quantitative findings. The results reveal a positive sign. The training and workshops helped participants to enter into the insights of their works. The school activities ran in more disciplined manner due to frequent visit and close supervision of the programme staff. However, of the two types of schools, the non-government schools show less improvement than the other.
