Educational Financing and Budgeting in Uzbekistan. Financial Management of Education Systems. Working Document.
Ziyaev, Muzafar K.; Rakhmonov, Ahadjon; Sultanov, Murtazo S.
This book provides an indepth description and analysis of financial management and budgetary procedures for education in Uzbekistan. The Uzbek approach is different from that of other newly independent countries of the former Soviet Union. The country chose a policy of maintaining the advantages of the former system of education while introducing relevant reforms and innovations. Its features are stability, continuity, self-reliance, and a thorough and conscientious examination of a variety of options for decision-making. Unlike other transition countries of the region that experienced certain difficulties in the financing of education, Uzbekistan elaborated prudently its major reform of the education system. Launched in 1997, the Presidential Programme for education development and staff training is unique for the post-Soviet zone because it extends the compulsory cycle of education up to 12 years, enhances the quality of curriculum according to Western standards, and upgrades obsolete institutions to the level of professional colleges and academic lyceums. Other remarkable changes are the introduction of textbook fees and income-generation at school level through entrepreneurial activities. Appendix 1 presents the rationale, description, and methodology used in this study. Appendix 2 lays out the program of the third meeting of the project on 21-25 June 1999. (Contains 19 tables and 2 charts.) (RT)
