Small schools organised [around] a reasonably well-resourced central school. Most satellite schools have just one classroom and one teacher who teaches several grades.
Satellite systems have to address difficult problems in managing progression through grades. The núcleo system in Bolivia aims to ensure that children complete their basic education at the consolidador, or central school. Another approach is to create satellite schools that provide a full primary cycle, such as those developed for remote rural communities in Burkina Faso (UNESCO, 2010: 192).
