Wednesday, January 22, 2020

USAID’s Achieving Student-Centered Education for a New Tomorrow program will support the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture, and Sports to improve the quality of primary education in Georgia.

USAID/Georgia announced Achieving Student-Centered Education for a New Tomorrow, a four-year program aimed at promoting student-centered instruction in primary education.  USAID will provide technical assistance to the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture, and Sports of Georgia (MoECS) to support education reforms prioritized by the Government of Georgia to ensure sustainable, inclusive, and student-centered education in all of Georgia’s primary schools.  The program emphasizes local partnerships, delivering technical assistance to the MoECS through domestic education experts.  

The new program will support enhanced teacher training and assist primary schools to design and deliver interactive curricula to help students develop literacy, numeracy, problem solving, and critical thinking skills.  By supporting schools to better meet the needs of girls, ethnic minorities, and children with disabilities, the program will foster a more inclusive society where young people from all backgrounds have opportunities to contribute to Georgia’s social and economic development. 

Achieving Student-Centered Education for a New Tomorrow will advance the following specific objectives: 1) implement student-centered curricula in Georgia’s primary education institutions; 2) build the capacity of teacher training programs to ensure that teachers and administrators acquire state-of-the-art professional skills; and 3) promote the development of education policies using evidence-based approaches.  USAID will coordinate its efforts with the World Bank and other donors supporting the Government of Georgia’s education reform.
