Improving the Quality of General Secondary Education in Uzbekistan: Focus on the Teaching Staff (2011/11)

Improving the Quality of General Secondary Education in Uzbekistan: Focus on the Teaching Staff (2011/11)

Publication year: 2011

Type: One-pager

Keywords: education, teacher, staff, quality, Uzbekistan, reforms, school

There are various points of views regarding the ways of implementing reform of school system aiming to improve the quality of education. Recent researches show that the quality of education, first of all, reflects the quality of teaching staff. The results of OECD "Teachers Matter" wide-scale project, assessment of factors influencing training quality of 15-aged pupils – PISA, and also global research of McKinsey&Company serve as evidence to it. Neither funds investing in education nor country size, neither indicators of equal educational opportunities nor cut in number of pupils and allowing schools to be more independent did not give such deep interconnection with pupils’ outputs as the quality of teaching staff.

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). At the same time the number of the most skilled teachers that is with the highest and the first categories falls for the same period.

The views expressed in this publication are those of the working group and do not necessarily reflect the official opinion of the Center for Economic Research.
