|Education Strategic Plan 2009-2013|
The ESP 2009-2013 review revealed changes and indicated that this was an important stage that the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport shall continue reforming the education, youth and sport sector in Cambodia in line with other reforms of the Royal Government. In the five-year-period of ESP implementation, MOEYS and its development partners have made significant improvements in providing equitable access to education, improving quality and the efficiency of education and education management.
ESP 2009-2013 was formulated to ensure linkages between education policies and strategies with development programs and actions as well as between planning and budgeting. In this phase, the Ministry intends to continue to give highest priority to equitable access with high quality education, especially basic education, in order to realize the National Education For All (EFA) Plan by 2015. ESP 2009-13 also gives greater emphasis to expanding early childhood education, expanding non-formal education, technical and vocational training and expanding opportunities to access secondary education and post-secondary education through the continued and improved partnership among RGC, development partners, private sector, non-governmental organizations, communities and parents.
In addition, the ESP 2009-13 will ensure optimum impact from education expenditure, by putting in place clearly defined measures to ensure its efficiency, especially placing key emphasis on providing educational access to children and youth who have missed their educational opportunities. Other strong focal points include strengthening the implementation of the Education Law, the teachers’ code of conduct and good governance. At the same time, key components include the capacity development of educational staff at all levels and the encouragement of decentralization.
The ESP 2009-2013 was developed with clearly defined mechanisms, studies, consultation and broad participation from relevant stakeholders, especially the Education Sector Working Group (ESWG). The MOEYS strongly hopes that the ESP 2009-2013 will be a roadmap for the effective implementation of the acceleration of the education sector reform for the benefit of all Cambodians.
The MOEYS would like to extend its profound gratitude
