Bishkek hosts discussions of challenges and opportunities for development of education sector in Kyrgyzstan.

Challenges and opportunities for the development of the education sector in Kyrgyzstan in the light of the recommendations of the World Bank's World Development Report 2018 "Learning to Realize Education's Promise" were discussed on March 16 in Bishkek.

Leading educational experts and practitioners, representatives of the government, the Parliament, academic and business circles, non-governmental and international organizations took part in the discussion organized by the Ministry of Education of Kyrgyzstan and the World Bank in partnership with the University of Central Asia and the American University of Central Asia.

This report states that millions of young students in low- and middle-income countries face the prospect of not realizing the education's promise that are opening up and receiving lower incomes because primary and secondary schools were not able to cope with the task of giving them an education that allows them to succeed in life.

Warning of the "learning crisis" in global education, the authors of the report indicate that attending school without gaining knowledge is not only a missed opportunity, but also a huge injustice for children and adolescents around the world.
