According to the press service of the Ministry of Public Education of Uzbekistan, the US Government will provide support in reforming the sphere of education in Uzbekistan in accordance with the document.

USAID plans to consult the Ministry in such areas as strategic planning, resource mobilization and technical support for improving the methodology of teaching and development of educational programs.

Besides, USAID will help evaluate reading skills (Early Grade Reading Assessment, EGRA) and math skills (Early Grade Mathematics Assessment, EGMA) of primary school students.

The US State Department will assist the Ministry in establishing school counseling services, developing new learning standards and textbooks, will consult the Ministry on school administration and deliver trainings for teachers in order to improve the quality of English language teaching at schools.
