US to continue supporting edu reforms in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD, June 22(Daily Times): USAID Mission Director for Pakistan Anne Aarnes has said that the United States will continue its partnership with Pakistan in supporting the vital task of raising the quality of teaching and learning in Pakistan.

She was speaking at the 4th inter-provincial conference hosted by the USAID Education Sector Reforms Assistance (ESRA) programme at the Academy for Educational Planning and Management (AEPAM) here on Thursday. Aarnes expressed satisfaction over the fact that USAID-funded education programmes had reached some districts, communities, schools and, most importantly, children who needed it the most.

State Education Minister Anisa Zeb Tahirkhaili, who chaired the conference, said that ESRA's overall objective was to strengthen education within the local government system.

The conference brought together a large group of policy makers, researchers, educationists, governance experts and managers to suggest improvements in the devolved education sector in Pakistan. The Education Sector Reform Assistance (ESRA) is a $ 83 million programme to support the government's Education Sector Reforms (ESR). The ESRA is part of the $ 1.5 billion aid provided by the US government to Pakistan for a 5-year period to improve the education, health, governance and economic growth of the country.
