Kyrgyz Republic

As one of the 21 GPE partner countries, the main educational challenges in the Kyrgyz Republic stems from the need to deepen reforms in key areas. One of the major challenges identified for the next decade is a comprehensive implementation process of educational standards. There is a need to prioritize access to high quality basic and primary education for both rural and minority population, alongside ensuring that the development of multilingual education and high quality teaching materials are provided in Uzbek, Kyrgyz and Russian languages.
