Supporting Changes in Reading Policy in Pakistan
Case Study from USAID's Pakistan Reading Project
The Pakistan Reading Project (PRP) successfully engaged with educators, local and province-level education officials, content developers and literacy experts to strengthen education policies across Pakistan. This brief reflects specifically on how PRP is committed to both the relationship-building and policy-relevant research necessary to achieve these policy changes. It also explores how these efforts resulted in new literacy standards, greater support for literacy instruction in classrooms and communities, the creation of more impactful and culturally relevant instructional materials and evidence to guide future policymaking around teacher professional development.
