Over the past 20 years, U.S. assistance has helped to rebuild and reform the educational system in Georgia. USAID’s programs have helped to train teachers, renovate schools, improve the management of the educational system, and create vocational and higher educational programs that serve the needs of a growing economy. USAID continues to invest in primary education to improve reading and math skills for girls and boys in primary school and support targeted vocational training programs in the areas where high employer demand exists. Programs that advance university-level teaching in Georgia’s most promising competitive sectors enhance the workforce with competitive skills and higher paid job opportunities.
Georgia Primary Education Project (G-Pried)
Oct 2011 – Oct 2015
The goal of the G-Pried project is to provide comprehensive assistance to the primary education system to improve reading and math competencies of Georgian and ethnic minority students. This will be achieved through supporting instructional improvements, testing and improving standards, use of technology, and development of subject experts in reading and math in schools as well as in the education departments of Georgia’s universities.
