Early Childhood Education: Considerations for USAID Programming in Asia
This report examines available evidence from the Asia region on the current state of ECE interventions, focusing on the 10 countries in the region that currently benefit from U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) education programming. In Asia, many national governments have prioritized the expansion of access and quality improvements of pre-primary education (Sun, Rao, & Pearson, 2015). USAID will support those efforts as part of a coherent approach to improved learning outcomes in primary school. This activity is funded by the USAID Asia Bureau’s All Children Reading Task Order and USAID/Washington. It falls under Result 1.1: Capacity of USAID Mission staff and partners in education sector increased.
