Established in five countries with over 100,000 students, Bridge International Academies (BIA) says it gives quality education to the families that need it most because they can’t afford it.
The relevance, according to a BIA release, is that the entity seeks to improve and build the Liberian systems, curriculum content, and means of engagement with parents, communities, governments, and education stakeholders in providing a holistic approach to learning.
BIA has deep roots in African and Asian countries including Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Liberia and India where it gives equal chances to underprivileged children to acquire quality education.
“As envisioned by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), the public and private sectors are leveraging their strengths to support teachers in their duties and children in their day-to-day learning, the release said.
The Liberian government has therefore taken bold steps towards improving the education system. The reality is that Liberians want and deserve better schools. As one of eight partners, Bridge Partnership Schools for Liberia is determined to collectively aid in this achievement.
Under the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed with the Ministry of Education MoE), Bridge Partnership School Liberia (PSL) is managed with autonomy within the existing laws to deliver on improved learning gains to benefit each child and the country.
To accomplish this, BIA Administration has called on the parents, average Liberians, educators, and students to stand up for the education they deserved.
The Bridge Partnership seeks to aid in the education initiative. According to the administration, the partnerships create an even space for players involved to actively pair minds to provide the best possible outcomes for the Liberian children and their future.
BIA believes that tomorrow, today’s students under the PSL will become the leaders, policy makers, teachers, scientists, and parents so they all deserve the same chance at becoming their best.
The entity says its alternative approaches to education provides an even playing field in the education system where the Liberia pilot project represents a diversified approach to learning, and millions of families and children around the globe are responding to addressing this need.
Unfortunately, the release stated, some parties wish to remain un-informed and hinder the proactive reach of the partnership to over 8,000 pupils to date learning at BIA 25 schools in Liberia,.
