  INEE Good Practice Guide: Training and Capacity Building – Pre-service, In-service and in the School
In emergency education situations, certified and uncertified teachers are typically unprepared to enter the classroom and address the needs of children affected by crisis. This lack of skills and knowledge is compounded by the fact that teachers have also been affected by the crisis, and are in some cases targeted for abuse. In these new situations, teacher training is required to: help teachers to cope, assist them to communicate new material, advise them on good techniques, and to review familiar subject areas.

  Making Small Schools Work
UNESCO - 2001
“The multi-grade school located close to the children’s homes offers a ready solution. Children do not have to walk ten kilometres to school. Nor do they need to face the dangers of sexual harassment and abduction. And they can contribute to the family’s labour needs without disrupting their schooling. However, are small multi-grade schools as good as large schools? This is the challenge we face. Alan Sigsworth and Karl Jan Solstad have devoted a lifetime to multi-grade schools, albeit in Europe rather than in Africa. What they have to offer in terms of professional and technical advice in this book is worthwhile.”
