According to the bank, the proposed Technical Cooperation grant (TC) has the objective of supporting the METI in the creation of a laboratory School for Early Childhood Education that can serve as a testing and innovation center for approaches that can eventually be implemented on a national scale. The recently constructed Maria Gall Hill center will house the Laboratory school. The LAB school will have a particularly focus on the teaching and learning of Science, Mathematics, and Literacy; it is part of the METI's goal to improve the teaching and learning of STEAM subjects. In addition, the Lab school will develop and test initiatives to increase parent involvement and parent education to motivate them to stay involved in their children's education throughout their school career.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
