Supporting Egypt Education Reform Project
Caroline Krafft, Assistant Professor of Economics, was awarded $49,703 by the World Bank “Supporting Egypt Education Reform Project” in an effort to improve the quality of the Expanding Egyptian Kindergarten (KG) sector. The objective of this project is to produce the evidence-base for the development of an in-service teacher training program for KG teachers in Egypt, and conduct an impact evaluation to measure the program’s cost-effectiveness on teaching practices and child outcomes. The university is expected to work in close collaboration with the World Bank Team and the Egyptian Ministry of Education and Technical Education (MOETE) to produce the evidence-base for the development of the in-service teacher training program and co-lead the design and implementation of the impact evaluation.
