In the Dominican Republic, education is mandatory at the primary, yet not at the secondary level. The Dominican Republic is facing several issues regarding its education. Overcrowded classrooms, poor-quality facilities, and outdated curriculums. Additionally, teachers are not paid enough, which makes teaching an unpopular job. This means that there is a high student to teacher ratio, which in turn leads to overcrowded classrooms.
By using the Montessori method, supporting and collaborating with parents and training local teachers, 3MM has created a model for early childhood education that makes a difference.
