A Learning Assessment of In- and Out-of-School Venezuelan Refugee Children and their Colombian 1st to 5th Grade Counterparts in Cúcuta

Posted: NOVEMBER 11, 2020

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) has developed global expertise on access to quality education for refugee, migrant, and displaced populations. In 2019, Tinker supported IRC to undertake a first-of-its-kind research study on the academic and social-emotional learning (SEL) needs of Venezuelan students in Colombia. The researchers found significant gaps in literacy and particularly math skills among both populations underlining the importance of addressing both access and quality as part of Colombia’s admirable efforts to integrate migrants into its public-school system. The findings also show the importance of addressing social-emotional learning among both migrant and host communities to ensure a safe learning environment.
