Towards an education system that produces graduates with the skills to succeed.

The Government of Uzbekistan Ministry of Public Education is committed to an ambitious program of systematic and comprehensive reforms. Uzbekistan 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. The reform agenda is intended to transform the instructional practices of the teaching workforce, moving away from a focus on rote and fact learning toward enhancing students’ ability to apply knowledge.

To support the Ministry of Public Education in achieving its reform agenda, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) initiated the four-year, $29.5 million Uzbekistan Education for Excellence Program in December 2019. The program aims to achieve and sustain four overarching results:

  • Improved outcomes in Uzbek language arts;
  • Improved outcomes in mathematics;
  • Enhanced information and communication technology (ICT) instruction; and
  • Improved English as a foreign language instruction.

Cross-cutting themes include capacity building, gender equality and social inclusion, transparency, local ownership, and sustainability.
