Report of the 4th Educational Forum: Towards Future-Ready Schools: Building Resilience and Ensuring Quality

In the interests of promoting inclusive dialogue and collaboration between the Government and think tanks in shaping public policy, Ponlok Chomnes would like to share the summary of discussions and high-level statements on how to improve the resilience of the education sector in Cambodia.

The document has been published by Department of Policy, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, in collaboration with Ponlok Chomnes Strategic Partner, Cambodia Development Resource Institute (CDRI).

The report was informed by nearly 700 participants of the 4th Educational Forum: Towards future-ready schools: Building resilience and ensuring quality, hosted by Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport, in collaboration with Ponlok Chomnes Strategic Partner, CDRI.

The report identifies the relationship between schools, parents and the community as being central to building a resilient, sustainable education system. The report also notes that if Cambodia continues to thrive, it is important that we acquire the necessary skills and competencies to succeed in a constantly evolving world.

Policy priority areas identified also include nurturing a strong school leadership culture, improving integration of digital technologies for teaching and learning, improving school governance, ongoing professional development for teachers and school directors, and building strong public-community partnerships.
