Lessons relevant to project design include:

-School-Based Management (SBM)-piloted in the Third Elementary Education Project (TEEP), Basic Education Assistance in Mindanao (BEAM) and in the Secondary Education Development and Improvement Project (SEDIP)-has been shown to enhance teaching and learning, prompt communities to make sound educational decisions in response to prevalent needs, and enhance learning outcomes.
