USAID's Investments for Education and Social Services in Lebanon - Dollars to Results
FY 2011 $8.3 M
FY 2012 $14.9 M
Approximately two-thirds of Lebanese children attend costly private schools, and public schools have become the last resort for families without means. The quality of private education is higher than public education, resulting in increased gaps between more economically advantaged youth and their poorer peers who cannot afford quality private education. Lebanese public schools suffer from a severe shortage of qualified English and French speakers who can teach math and science in these languages. In addition, a large number of public schools have infrastructure problems, such as broken windows and leaking roofs. USAID works in coordination with the Ministry of Education and and American Educational Institutions to improve the quality of basic education in Lebanon.
USAID's Education Program in Lebanon Aims To:
- Improve basic education; and
- Support higher education.
