Home / State Policy on Education (Approved by State Ikh Khural) – Mongolia

Summary of Policy:
1. Target population

This is the state policy that delivers educational services to the citizens of Mongolia.

2. Goals/Objectives

For the State to provide a comprehensive education system for all.

3. Challenges, opportunities

The law is too vague, which has negative implications for evaluating the policy. For example, a quote from the law states “Higher and Vocational Education will develop a strategy for education over the next 10 years, in order to successfully develop the competitiveness of the labour market, to create self-reliant jobs … to develop the capacity of national innovation.”

4. Outcomes,impact

Information is lacking regarding policy implementation and outcomes

Timeline: To be in effect from 2014-2024.

Strengths:

It is important to note here that education policy is directed towards creating jobs rather than assisting young people competing for jobs.

Weaknesses:

Studies have shown that poor quality education exacerbates problems realted to the school-to-work transition. However, over the last 10 years, the adequate alignment of education and labour policies has not taken place.

Opportunities for Improvement:
It is crucial to ensure education policy is closely aligned with the needs of the labour market.
