Welcome to the Quality of Education Theme!

School heads are instrumental in increasing the quality of education. How do we measure quality? In primary education the level of competence in basic skills like reading, writing and maths is often considered the measurement of success. ESHA believes that these basic skills are important, however, confidence, self exploration and entrepreneurial skills are equally important.
