Title: Myanmar Comprehensive Education Sector Review
Description/subject: "The vision of the Comprehensive Education Sector Review (CESR) is to develop an education system that promotes a learning society capable of facing the challenges of the Knowledge Age and that it helps to build a modern developed nation through education. The review will help ensure that there is a full and comprehensive understanding of the current status of education in Myanmar, regarding access and quality across the sub-sectors; as well as current strengths and gaps in policy, capacity, management systems, financing and partnership. This will support the implementation of priority reforms and the assessment of realistic policy options to form the basis of a costed, strategic education sector plan. These, in turn, have the potential to address the challenges and greatly accelerate progress towards realisation of Myanmar’s education and socio-economic goals. The CESR will be conducted through a coherent three phase process, which aims to strike a balance between completeness, quality and timeliness, and will be completed in three phases between 2012 and 2014. The establishment of CESR in 2012 was followed by the setting up by the President in late 2013 of the Education Promotion Implementation Committee (EPIC). CESR is developing recommendations for reform of the education system; EPIC is drafting policies for implementation of educational reform. The two groups work together. A key focus for EPIC is to develop a national Education Law as an overarching framework for education. CESR and EPIC will develop and present one overall, integrated plan. Implementation of Myanmar’s education reform program has already commenced in early 2014, and will continue through 2015-20."
