Successful Education Is Security for Our Children: Improved Access to High School in Stara Zagora

Year Area / Project Project Period
2014 Educational Achievement Program / Образователни възможности и постижения Oct 2014 - Jul 2015

This project addresses the lack of quality preparation in key academic subjects and lower rates of high school enrollment and graduation of Roma students in Stara Zagora by providing tutorials in Bulgarian language and literature and mathematics and support for high school enrollment for 60 students in 6th, 7th and 8th grade that attend schools outside the Roma neighborhood.  The project aims to prepare about 50 students in 6th and 7th grade for the state exams (“maturi”) and successful admission to entrance-exam (elite) high schools after 7th grade. In addition, about 10 students in 8th grade (mostly beneficiaries of the 2013-2014 project) will receive additional lessons and guidance to enroll in high school.
