Education

When the break-up of the Soviet Union resulted in a significant decline in government funding for schools, Tajikistan’s education system confronted an exodus of teaching talent.  An important part of the country’s development going forward is the establishment of an education system that can help its future leaders develop critical thinking skills to understand the intricacies of the global economy and communicate effectively with the rest of the world.   Education will also play an important role in fostering an appreciation for cultural diversity amongst the Tajik people.
