Bangladesh: Secondary Education Sector Investment Program
ADB's Secondary Education Sector Investment Program addresses the challenges of making secondary education in Bangladesh more efficient, equitable, and relevant to the economy’s needs.
The proposed investment program will support the government’s reform of secondary education into a system that builds the foundation for a skilled labor force and prepares youths to meet the requirements of a rapidly developing economy.
The project has three key features:
- a longterm programmatic approach, to help in the decentralization of education management;
- use of disbursement-linked indicators as incentives to achieve sector results, help improve public financial management, and strengthen awareness of good governance; and
- transition to a sector-wide approach, with all projects aligned with a common secondary education program framework by 2017.
