Hliang General Administrative Department wants you to contribute in our education system by investing in our project to train more high school teachers.
In an effort to bolster the development of the education system, spending significantly increased during the tenure of the outgoing president, U Thein Sein. In his last approved budget, spending on education increased to $1.3bn, accounting for more than 5% of total government expenditure and up from $1bn in fiscal year 2014/15. This is a significant step up from the days of the military regime, when education only received 1.3% of total expenditure on average over a 50-year period. The latest increase in funding has been earmarked to employ an additional 50,000 teachers, while the free education system launched in recent years has been extended to higher education to assist in the drive to expand the number of graduates entering the workplace.
Overcrowding remains a major problem that hinders effective teaching, with a pupil-to-teacher ratio of 28:1 in primary schools and 34:1 at the secondary level, considerably higher than in neighbouring Thailand, with a ratio of 16:1 for primary schools and 19:1 at secondary schools. However, the Department of Basic Education seems committed to easing the strain.
Participate in this project to empower our children to succeed.
