Due to the facts that in the context of Protestant Malagasy education, 80 % of all teachers have not received initial teacher training and that funds are limited to provide adequate further training, professional learning communities are presented as a tool to enhance teacher capacities and educational quality. The article presents a controlled teacher training intervention followed by a qualitative research project. The results show that while professional learning communities may be an effective tool to enhance educational quality there are also some hindrances linked to it such as the superiority or inferiority complex among the teachers of a group.
