Kyrgyzstan    Kyrgyzstan on the Globe

Educators in post-Communist eastern Europe and the Newly Independent States are struggling to implement pedagogical practices that encourage active learning and critical thinking as well as to build stronger linkages between schools and communities. In 1994, the Soros Foundation began to assist interested countries in adapting the Step by Step Program - an approach to early child-centered learning and family participation in education.
IEQ conducted an in-depth evaluation of the impact of Step by Step in Bulgaria, Kyrgyzstan, Romania, and Ukraine. IEQ staff and host country researchers developed instruments and protocols that were used to collect a variety of data - from children's test scores to interviews with parents, teachers, and decision makers - in order to measure the impact of the program.
