This pilot addresses low learning outcomes in literacy and numeracy. The cause of these low outcomes stems from the language of classroom instruction. Pilot activities support teachers to better plan and manage the transition from mother tongue or local language instruction to using Bahasa Indonesian as the primary medium of classroom instruction and assessment. The pilot works with early-grade students in 20 schools (two madrasah and 18 public schools) in Bima district. This pilot finished in July 2019.
