The IIG project in Uganda is piloting and evaluating policies to strengthen School Management Committees as a means to improve performance in public primary schools. A randomized experiment design is being used to evaluate the policies. In June 2008, the IIG project in Uganda conducted a baseline data collection exercise on the school, the school management, pupils, parents and teachers. In February 2009, a partnership was entered with SNV and World Vision to undertake policy interventions to strengthen School Management Committees. This baseline report provides highlights of the process and emerging results.
