Pedagogical practices, i.e., what is taught and how it is taught, have a major influence on school perseverance. These practices affect students’ overall interest in the subject being taught and, more broadly, their enjoyment of the learning experience. Certain factors related to teaching practices significantly promote learning, including ongoing teacher training and student-teacher relationships based on trust.
Courses of effective action
- Put in place initiatives to attract and keep competent teachers.
- Encourage a positive attitude of parents and the community toward the teaching profession, people working in schools, and in particular, the teachers of their children.
