Entity: Canada - Canada (Canadian International Development Agency - CIDA)
Activity: Education in Bhutan
Activity description: In Bhutan, the traditional monastic system is still very active in the education system. The modern, English education system was established recently and has grown rapidly. The royal Government of Bhutan has cited concerns over the quality of current English language and Mathematics instructions. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is seen as a key tool to improve teachers’ access to better learning. Educators have been exposed to new approaches to primary and secondary education. CIDA supports the project’s goal to increase the capacity of Bhutan to provide a gender-sensitive curriculum and instructional curriculum for primary and secondary English-language courses.
