Exciting news!!!! With support from DIV, we’re adding a second school to the Math Whiz pilot.  The second school is located in Harchowal, Punjab and is more representative of rural schools as it is in a more remote area, about 60 km from Amritsar, Punjab.  The demographics of students that attend this school are also more representative of rural areas and the school utilizes the Punjab Board curriculum, which is the Board standard used by government run schools across Punjab, vs. the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) standard used by the National Public School, our initial Pilot site.  The learnings from adding this school will enable us to better understand the impact of the intervention on a more representative school.   We’ll also learn what it takes to manage different school sites and also address two Board standards, all of which will also be quite useful to learn from for scale-up.
