Qualitative Research

It is well known that there is no one and easy way to measure the quality of the education, thus the expectations and existing statistical data were collected and the opinion of various target groups was studied. CAAE carried out conversations, focus groups, surveys, analyses and created a complicated web of connections that clearly indicated what was happening at school and in the hearts of people.
