Posted on 07/20/2011 2:15:30 PM PDT by Steve Peacock
A preliminary five-year plan to improve Ethiopia's educational system was released today by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The draft Statement of Work (SOW) outlines what the agency expects to accomplish via the Reading for Ethiopias Achievement Developed (READ) project, which seeks to improve the reading and writing skills of elementary school students.
According to the draft SOW:
"The overall program will have four components: curriculum improvement, pedagogical techniques, appropriate technology and teaching aids, and co‐curricular activity and community outreach. In addition, an evaluation project is expected to conduct mid‐term and final evaluations of the complete READ program to determine the impact of the program intervention."
USAID is seeking comments on the draft document before issuing a formal Request for Proposals from contractors interested in bidding on the project. The agency did not disclose an estimated cost of the endeavor.

If this is funded the GOP house is run by “Judenrat”.
The idea of the US exporting its schooling practices is appalling.
USAID should be eliminated from the new budget, period. All foreign aid should be eliminated, too.
If Atlanta is any indication, we have nothing worth exporting. This is a great place to cut spending! We are broke.
Heck, they don’t have to go to Africa to do that. They can do that in Alexandria, Virginia!!
Can we send Moochelle over there to teach ‘em all ‘bout Newtrishun?
