The immediate objective of
this study is to conduct an investigation of school students, teachers and
principals to follow-up on findings from the baseline survey that indicated
additional needs. Consultant(s) will collect information and impressions from
these respective groups to verify actual psychosocial needs in the schools
against those suggested by survey findings and to validate and refine planned
project interventions. The specific areas of interest as suggested by the
baseline survey are as follows…

1) Many students have visions
of what they would like to do as adults but do not see connections between
current school activities/individu al behavior and desired professional or
personal outcomes;
2) Many teachers express
interest in participatory teaching methods and several have received some
training in such methods, however, few teachers feel that they have the
necessary skills or confidence to practice such participatory methods
3) School principals are the
key individuals responsible for the successful execution of the school mission,
however, opportunities remain to build management and team-building capacity
among this highly-qualified cadre of education
