Pakistan - Education Sector Adjustment for the Government of Punjab Province Project (English)

The ratings for the Education Sector Adjustment for the Government of Punjab Province were the following: the outcome was satisfactory, the sustainability was likely, the institutional development impact was satisfactory, and the Bank and borrower performance were both satisfactory. The reform program has already fostered broad changes such as increased financial resources devoted to the education sector, a new cadre of contract teachers being recruited, improvements in school infrastructure, and restructuring of the data monitoring system to inform credible policy dialogue. It is critical that the momentum be sustained, and that the programmatic approach remains flexible enough to accommodate lessons learned from ongoing activities and changes in ground realities - while maintaining overall coherence and direction of the reform. While initially viewed as a three year operation, it is a long term program, and therefore the Bank could consider a longer commitment as long as there continues to be well documented and sustained improvements in educational outcomes in Punjab.
