CERC Seminar: Shadow Education in Myanmar Private. Supplementary Tutoring and its Policy Implications

Dear CERC members,

You’re cordially invited to the next CERC seminar co-hosted with the Faculty of Education on coming Tuesday, 18 September 2018 at 12:45 – 14:00 in Room 204 of Runme Shaw Building.

Shadow Education in Myanmar: Private Supplementary Tutoring and its Policy Implications
by Mark Bray, Nutsa Kobakhidze and Ora Kwo
This seminar will present the findings of a CERC research project conducted in Myanmar under the auspices of UNESCO and with support from the Yangon University of Education (YUOE). A mixed-methods study collected data from students in Grades 9 and 11 and from teachers, parents and other stakeholders. Some features of shadow education resemble those in other places, but some reflect the regulations and socio-political culture of Myanmar.

Later this month the authors will discuss the findings with policy-makers in Myanmar’s Ministry of Education. They will value suggestions during this CERC seminar on the ways to highlight the core issues most effectively.
Date: Tuesday, 18 September 2018.
Time: 12:45 – 14:00.
Venue: Room 204, Runme Shaw Building.
All are welcome!
