USAID Teacher Education Project in Pakistan 

The USAID Teacher Education Project in Pakistan is a five year project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by the Education Development Center (EDC). Through the USAID Teacher Education Project, Teachers College Columbia University is providing support to the Government of Pakistan to develop and implement a new four-year bachelor's degree in education and a two-year associate degree in education. The Project is a collaborative effort with the Ministry of Education (MoE) and Higher Education Commission (HEC) to better teacher education standards in universities and colleges across the country. Teachers College facilitates the institutionalization of the USAID Teachers Education Project through academic research, strategic planning, and curriculum design and development.
