Improving the Quality of General Secondary Education in Uzbekistan: Focus on the Teaching Staff (2011/11)
The important indicators of the quality of the teaching staff are the educational level, professional category and the age structure of the school teachers. Analysis of the structure of teaching staff by the level of education shows a positive trend in the share of teachers with higher education (increased by 3% from 2005 and reached 70.2% in 2009).
The long-term sustainability of economic growth will be determined by the transition pace from the extensive resources buildup driven model to the model driven by the increase in their efficient use.
On the whole, Uzbekistan’s food policy proved its effectiveness and averted the threats to the nation’s food security. A number of key elements of Uzbekistan’s food security strategy, such as targeted support of young children and women at the time of pregnancy, distribution of assets to households, integration of food security programs with the national healthcare system are now considered as internationally accepted best practices.
