Assessment of Kindergarten Teacher Training in Jordan

Since 1999, there has been rapid expansion in the development and availability of public school kindergartens in Jordan, with close to 1,000 classrooms and trained teachers today. This study assesses the kindergarten training programs, kindergarten teachers’ self-reported competencies, and classroom practices, using a representative random sample of kindergarten teachers from 38 directorates and 249 schools in Jordan.

The study found that 9 out of 10 teachers performed at a satisfactory level or above in their own classes and that attending one of the five teacher training programs has a significant benefit. Little benefit, however, was seen in attending more than one. World Education, Inc. 2013.
