Ministry of Public Education and USAID Partner to Help Improve Secondary Education in Uzbekistan

December 4, 2020, Tashkent, Uzbekistan – From November 30 to December 4, 2020 more than 80 education professionals participated in a virtual workshop on “Curriculum Development and Review” hosted by the USAID-funded Education for Excellence Program. The workshop fostered a shared understanding and deepening of knowledge and skills on modern curriculum development that are essential to develop, review, pilot and finalize high quality curriculum products, including student standards, textbook scope and sequences, student textbooks and teacher guides.

The Ministry of Public Education is committed to an ambitious program of systematic and comprehensive reform of the general secondary education system. The Ministry is working to create an education system that can produce graduates with the critical thinking, problem solving, and practical skills that will enable them to succeed in school and after graduation.

To support the Ministry in achieving its reform agenda, USAID initiated the four-year, Uzbekistan Education for Excellence Program in December 2019. The program is implemented by the Research Triangle Institute (RTI) and its consortium partners, Florida State University and Mississippi State University.
