BWNS: Catalyzing an Education Revolution

August 6, 2018, in Audio > Podcasts, by

This podcast episode produced by the Baha’i World News Service shares how the Baha’i-inspired initiative Sistema de Aprendizaje Tutorial (SAT, or in English, the Tutorial Learning System) has proven to increase learning. The United Nations has noted that while progress has been made in providing education for the children of the world, 250 million children are not able to read, write, or perform basic math, whether they have been to school or not. The Brookings Institution, a major think tank in the United States, conducted a study that sought to identify educational interventions where not only access to schools was improving, but also learning itself. They determined that SAT is “catalyzing an education revolution” by “transforming how education is conceptualized, designed, and delivered.”

Since its beginnings in the 1970s in Colombia, SAT has expanded across Latin America to reach more than 300,000 students, and it has been accredited and recognized by a number of governments.
