Armenia - Second Education Quality and Relevance Project and Education Improvement Project : request for inspection (English)

On May 16, 2014, the Inspection Panel received a Request for Inspection (hereafter 'the request') related to the Armenia: Second Education Quality and Relevance Project (APL II) ('EQRP 2') and the Education Improvement Project ('EIP'). The EQRP2 was approved by the World Bank Board of Executive Directors (the 'Board') on May 12, 2009 for SDR 17.0 million IDA credit (equivalent ofUS$25.0 million) to the Republic of Armenia with a closing date of November 30, 2014. It consists of three components, namely: 1) enhancing the quality of general education; 2) supporting tertiary education reforms in the context of Bologna agenda; and 3) project management, monitoring and evaluation. The Ministry of Education and Science will be responsible for the implementation of the project supported by a Center for Education Project (CEP) acting as the project implementing unit. At the time the panel received the request for inspection, about 72 percent of the credit had been disbursed. The requesters state that 'any new loan' will have to 'take into account the problems with the previous loan program' and address those issues. The requesters attached several case studies to illustrate impact on students and parents who are among the requesters.
