U.S. Withdraws from Education Reform in Iraq
Zehr, Mary Ann
Education Week, v26 n1 p1, 24-25 Aug 2006
This article discusses the withdrawal of the United States government from educational reform in Iraq. It has however, through the U.S. Agency for International Development, awarded a two-year National Capacity Development contract, which is aimed at helping Iraq's government ministries to function better. This article discusses how security issues played a role in the U.S. government's withdrawal from the education sector. It also discusses how Creative Associates International Inc., a Washington-based firm charged with carrying out most of the USAID's education work in Iraq, had helped in the education reform. Among other things, the article also discusses the little change in school noticed by some Iraqi high school students since the defeat of Saddam Hussein, and that some Iraqis or Iraqi Americans want the USAID to stay in the education sector.
