    This report outlines the findings of a longitudinal study conducted by Akshara Foundation in Hoskote Block of Bangalore Rural district. The study employed a controlled before-and-after design to compare the effectiveness of the program on the learning outcomes of the children, the classroom practices, and teacher behavior. The sample of two clusters was drawn from two educational blocks, Hoskote (treatment block) and Devanahalli (control block). All the schools of the two clusters were considered as the sample for the study. Nine assessments across three academic years were conducted for data collection on the learning outcomes and classroom behaviors. The findings showed that the program led to gradual positive improvements in the students’ scores from marginal to high levels during the study period. [Report Akshara].
